GLOBAL MISSION

Mission is not just what we do, it’s a part of who we are as a congregation. It starts in our own community as we love our neighbors, serve our city, and express the love of Jesus in word and deed. 


GLOBAL MISSIONS

 

The good news of God’s grace and forgiveness in Jesus impacts us from the inside out, and moves us in ever-increasing circles of concern for our neighbor, our nation and our world.

 

Our Global Mission works through personal relationships with people who are taking the message and mercy of Jesus beyond the borders of our congregation into other parts of the United States and around the world. The core concern in Global Mission is to saturate the world with the knowledge of God’s salvation until every man, woman and child on earth has repeated opportunities to hear and respond to the Good News of Jesus. Our hope is to see many becoming his followers together in healthy, growing local churches.

 

We focus on our featured partners, a select group of missionaries with whom we share close friendship, strategic cooperation and significant material resources.

 

 

"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit..." Matthew 28:19

MISSIONARIES SUPPORTED BY COVENANT CHURCH

One of the signs of a healthy church is that some of its members rise up to become fulltime, vocational missionaries. We are pleased to support these home-grown partners!

Lindsay Kimball, Associate Director of Mission, Serge, Jenkintown, PA

 

Lindsay grew up at Covenant and is “one of our own.”  She serves with Serge to provide support, counseling and care for their missionaries around the world.  Lindsay teaches, trains, coaches and advises those who have devoted their lives to spreading the Gospel in far off places.  Pray that Lindsay remains rooted in the Gospel and ready to provide the kind of help that each missionary needs from her.

Katie Caskey
Shepherd's Bush, London, EU

Katie first sensed her calling to the mission field while leading our students on their mission trip to London.   Now she has joined the church planting team in Shepherd’s Bush, doing outreach, community service and evangelism in one of the most diverse neighborhoods of the city.   Pray for Katie as she adjusts to life overseas and her place on the team, that God would make her fruitful.

Keghan Crossland

Cru National Media Production

 

Keghan learned much about following Jesus here at Covenant and through our student ministry.   Now he serves fulltime with Cru, using his outstanding skills in videography to declare the Gospel on college campuses and to motivate students to be equipped, trained and sent to their classmates with the Good News.   Pray that Keghan would be greatly used by God in the vital role he plays on the Cru team.

Peter & Sarah Lyon

Reformed University Fellowship
Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia

 

Peter and Sarah were long time members and staff here at Covenant. They felt God's call to partner with RUF down in Virginia to help share the Gospel to College Students. Pray that Peter and Sarah would be faithful and bold ministers as they share Christ with college students and help others to take next steps in their faith journey.

Beth Knapp

Beth is our “legacy partner,” Covenant’s longest serving and supported missionary. She is a high-ranking leader with Wycliffe Bible Translators serving in Central Africa, the Congo, and other nearby countries. She oversees teams that work to deliver the Bible in indigenous language. Pray for her safety in war-torn countries. And pray that she would have great wisdom and knowledge as she translates God’s Word.
