On June 15, 2012 IRPC officially entered into ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians, a new denomination formed by and mostly consisting of Presbyterian churches dismissed from the PC(USA). Rev. Dr. Allin had been one of the principal architects of the new order, and because of this and his firm defense of the truth of the Gospel during the season of denominational unrest, was appointed President of ECO in the spring of 2012. Dr. Rev. Allin’s last day at IRPC was April 14, 2013 as he left to become the Executive Director of ECO.
