Covenant Church is governed by an Elder Board whose voting members consist of seven congregational elders and our Lead Pastor. The purpose of the Elder Board is to make sure Covenant’s mission, “Building a Community to Reach a Community” is implemented effectively and in keeping with our ministry values which seek to live out Biblical ministry by being, “Missional, Relevant, Accessible, Relational, and Transformational”. The Elder Board works to ensure that Covenant stays true to our mission and that Covenant is in compliance to the Bible and to our established policies and by-laws.
The Elder Board receives monthly updates from our Executive Pastor Rob Bloss and Lead Pastor Bob Myers. They oversee the preaching, the budget, ensure that our operations are held to the highest standard of Biblical and legal integrity, and oversee the spiritual health and vitality of the congregation by working with our shepherding elders who focus on discipleship and member care.
