A conservative Presbyterian breakaway network of churches founded as an alternative to the more liberal Presbyterian Church (USA) has passed the 100-membership mark, the Christian Post website reports today (January 14, 2014).
Founded just two years ago, the Evangelical Covenant Order (ECO) of Presbyterians passed the milestone late last year and continues to add more congregations this month.
In an announcement recently sent out to supporters, ECO hailed the passing of the 100-church mark as a "milestone."
Church officials said they recently added four more churches to the network and added, "Welcome to these new ECO churches. We praise God for His Faithfulness and look forward to growing together in 2014!"
