For the last decade, ECLAS has been working to equip senior Christian leaders with the tools, context and skills they need to engage confidently with science in their ministry and their personal faith.
ECLAS was born from the conviction that science is a gift from God, but that too often Christian leaders lack the confidence and tools to engage with scientific questions.
