ABOUT ECLAS

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. Working with partners around the world, we want to create opportunities for church leaders to connect with science and scientists, to develop well-informed, theologically grounded, practical knowledge about the world and our place in it.

Original Research

Research forms the basis of ECLAS’ work to drive culture change within the Church. Our research informs our policy work, resource development, and senior leaders’ conferences. Along with our international partners, our research focus is on how context -- covering geographic, cultural, theological, denominational, national, and political settings -- offer challenges and opportunities for Church leaders' engagement with science.
