EFCA Blogs

This is a page that will be in flux as I work through the Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA). I compiled as a resource the active blogs from both the national and each respective EFCA district. I will be updating this as I continue to work through the EFCA denomination. If I miss any blog that you believe should be included please email me at wonderingeagle261@gmail.com and I will update and correct.
