What is ECMT?

The Ecumenical Campus Ministries Team (ECMT), formerly Higher Education Ministries Arena (ECMT), is part of the Education and Leadership Ministries Commission of the National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA. ECMT provides a structure through through which seven denominations work ecumenically to achieve common goals in higher education ministries:

ECMT makes available online a Directory of Ministries in Higher Education, publishes Lenten and Advent meditation guidebooks, provides an online Personnel Service, sponsors training events and occasional continuing education events for new campus ministers, chaplains, pastors and laypersons along with other projects.

An ecumenical web site, is managed by the Ecumenical Campus Ministries Team (ECMT) and maintained by Higher Education & Leadership Ministries of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). For comments or suggestions about this page, please feel free to contact us at

ECMT is a sponsor and partner with the Council for Ecumenical Student Christian Ministries in their ministries for and with students and in their relationship with the World Student Christian Movement.
