Individuals can join Evana and participate in a range of learning communities and gain access to online groups, resources, and support. Individual members also receive a discount on all events. Individual members are required to sign the Evana Personal Covenant.
Congregations can join Evana in an ‘Affiliate Partnership’ or ‘Full Partnership.’
Affiliate membership is for congregations that receive oversight from another denomination or group. Full Partnership members gain access to Evana’s resources, groups, and events. Affiliate membership is renewed on an annual basis. The Lead Pastor and head of Leadership Board are required to sign Evana’s Congregational Covenant.
Full Partnership is for congregations that desire oversight from Evana as well as gain access to the resources, groups, and events. Full partnership congregations receive assistance with pastoral credentialing, pastoral search, polity structure, and congregational leadership support. The Pastoral Staff and Leadership Board members must sign Evana’s Congregational Covenant. All Pastoral Staff must also sign the Personal Covenant.
Evana Network’s primary work is with the local congregation. We enter into strategic partnerships with like-minded institutions such as denominations, conferences, constituency groups, mission agencies, and institutions of higher learning. We do this for several reasons.
- To facilitate movement toward mission in local congregations through church planting and church revitalization.
- To strengthen a shared commitment to an evangelical Anabaptist theology.
- To allow our unique capacities to strengthen the other.
