About Us


In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people.

Acts 2:17

Outpour Evangelical Covenant Church is a multi-ethnic church located in St. Louis, MO. Planted in 2009, Outpour primarily consisted of young working adults and was born out of a desire to transform St. Louis with a recognition that this could not be done with our own strength. Today, Outpour has developed into a community focused on supporting the spiritual growth of its congregation and spreading the word of God throughout the St. Louis region.

Our Mission:

Outpour’s name originates from the book of Acts (see above) in which Peter is addressing the first church, explaining what God was doing in their community. As such, it is our mission to let God fill us with His spirit and lead us by His word with the goal of glorifying Him. We then pour out on all those around us, so that they may receive his free gift of eternal life. 

Our Vision:

Outpour believes that God is committed to building bridges between communities that are often separate (1 Thessalonians 5:11; 1 Corinthians 14:26) Given this, Outpour aspires to build these bridges that empower both women and men in a multi-ethnic, multi-generational, and multi-economic community as God intended.

Our Core Principles:
Filled Up:

God fills us up by inviting us to freely receive His spirit through interactions with Him and our community such as worship, prayer, fellowship, fasting, and the study of scripture.

Poured Out:

God calls us to a lifetime of mission both within and outside the Church.  We pour out
His love to all those around us and spread the good news of His eternal salvation.
