The Covenant Yearbook began publication in 1885 after the first annual meeting of the Svenska Evangeliska Missions-Förbundet in Princeton, Illinois. Compiled annually, the yearbook is a record of the Evangelical Covenant Church. It contains resources based on reports from the administrative offices, the mission fields, conferences, and the educational and benevolent institutions of the denomination. It also publishes the proceedings of the annual meeting and a current list of pastors and local churches with statistical data. Originally published in Swedish, the yearbook gradually transitioned to English-only by the mid-1930s.
