About us:

Erie Christian Fellowship Church exists so others may experience Jesus in everyday life. Our roots are in the integrity of God’s Word expressed in love and compassion. Our founding Pastors, Jim and Pam Dumont moved to Erie in 1989 living in a tent. Their God given mandate was to “Move to Erie, become established and build a great church.” A great church is the assembly of people who gather to honor God and serve others through their spiritual gifts.

ECF is blessed with amazing facilities to accommodate both children and middle school ministry. In addition, our church founded and oversees Leadership Christian Academy which is a Pre-K through grade 8 elementary/middle Christian school.
