Church Planting and Leadership Development

Andrea Diener (admin), 7/14/2018

Church Planting

God has ordained that the primary agency for making disciples is a local church, therefore our focus in global & cross-cultural missions is the planting of gospel-centered, evangelical, and Reformed churches, the development and training of indigenous church leaders for those churches and partnering with ministries aggressively seeking those ends through evangelism, discipleship and mercy ministry efforts.

We want to see Biblical, healthy, disciple-making churches established around the world. It is a core belief of Covenant Church that a healthy, gospel-centered local church is the best organization for evangelizing and training disciples of Jesus Christ, effectively implementing mercy ministry, changing a culture through the gospel and the commissioning of indigenous Christian workers and missionaries.

If you need more information or have questions on global missions, contact Jonathan Culley, Director of Church Planting or Leadership Development,

Each year, our church family will enjoy together an adventure in Global Missions giving known as FAITH PROMISE.   Faith Promise is a Spirit-led means of financially supporting foreign missions.  It involves "faith" because we are deciding to give over the next year money we don't currently have or aren't certain we will receive or intend to give as God enables.  It involves "promise" because as God supplies the money, we promise to follow through in joyful obedience and give it to Global Missions instead of using it for other personal needs.
