History of CEFC

Covenant Evangelical Free Church started life in 1978 as a church plant with 17 pioneer members from Emmanuel Evangelical Church (EEC). It was called Emmanuel Christian Fellowship (ECF) then.

In 1987, Pastor Edmund Chan took over the mantle of ECF when he graduated from Singapore Bible College. In October 1992, ECF was renamed Covenant Evangelical Free Church.
