We Believe…

All children are worthy of love and understanding.

Meet Our Chaplains

We make God visible to the children we serve.

Ministry of Presence Probably the most important aspect of the chaplains' time with the children is what we call “the ministry of presence”. Our chaplains walk the halls; visit the units; play cards, board games, or video games; or watch TV with the youth. The non-anxious presence of our chaplains reassures the teens that their spiritual well-being is being looked after.

Thank you to all of the birthday party volunteers from Christ Church Cathedral and Emmanuel Episcopal. When our volunteers host a monthly birthday party for the children in juvenile detention, the children get a break from their circumstances. For an evening, the kids get to be just that - kids!

Thank you to all who came out to listen to Bill Wolff and the Oldies but Goodies and support ECM at the same time! Bill packed the house playing old time rock-n-roll. We are overwhelmed by the generosity of all who attended. ECM collected just over $1700 which goes a long way to help us keep a chaplaincy presence in the St. Louis City and County juvenile detention centers. And last but not least, THANK YOU to Bill Wolff for his dedication to ECM throughout the years. Bill - you will be missed and good luck in Arizona!

A little ice won't keep us away from watching good friend and ECM Board Chair, Bill Wolff perform one last time before he moves to Arizona! Come on out THIS SUNDAY from 4:00 to 7:00 at the KIRKWOOD STATION BREWING COMPANY to listen to some good ole rock-n-roll from the 50's, 60's and 70's! Hope to see you there!!
