Evangelical Community in Ubangi-Mongala
B.P. 140, Gemena
Congo, Democratic Republic (Africa)
Address-No.: 12148 / 1237

The church came into existence through missionary efforts of the (Swedish) Mission Covenant Church in the United States (cf. United States no. 15a). The Mission Covenant Church in the USA has close links with the Svenska Missions-forbŁndet (cf. Sweden). In 1927 a delegation of the Church in Sweden visited the Swedish Evangelical Mission Covenant Church in the United States. In 1937 the church changed its name to Evangelical Covenant Church of America. In the same year the church developed plans for missionary work in central Africa. As investigations in the French Congo failed, the missionaries of the Covenant Church, with the support of the Conseil Protestant du Congo and the Svenska Missions-forbŁndet, started work in the far northwest of the Belgian Congo. Before independence this church closely collaborated with the Disciples of Christ (cf. no. 6), especially in the field of education. It also sent students to the medical school of Kimpese (cf. CEC, no. 7). Having its roots in the region of origin of late president Mobutu, the church enjoyed certain advantages but was also faced with considerable difficulties. The church belongs to the Eglise du Christ au Congo (ECC), but it is not a member of WARC or ARCK.
