EGC is on the Move!

EGC has sold our building in the South End, and we are preparing to move to Second Church in Codman Square, Dorchester!

Innovation is in our DNA. Over our 80-year history, our focus has always been the same—to strengthen Christian leaders to serve urban communities. But our methods grow and evolve as we learn from and adapt to the ever-changing realities of Boston.

Our decision to move stems from our desire to be agile and sustainable, allowing us to concentrate our time and resources into serving leaders and loving the city.
