Leadership Testimonies

“Wherever a vital church planting effort with a deep commitment to Christian community development principles is birthed in a marginalized neighborhood, great things happen for the kingdom. No one is doing a better job of recruiting, equipping, and launching these church efforts than the Evangelical Covenant Church.”

– Noel Castellanos
CEO, Christian Community Development Association

“When you plant with the Covenant, you get more than an affiliation. You get a family. This mission family cares for you, supports you, and is a phone call away. As a church planter, you can often feel alone so to have a mentor that prays, supports, and resources you is extremely invaluable and comforting. It has made all the difference for our church plant.”

– Janine Davis
Lead Pastor, The Bridge Covenant Church
Detroit, Michigan

“It is hard to put into words what a blessing it has been to plant a church with the Evangelical Covenant. The emphasis on pastoral health has helped make the daunting prospect of planting a church a life-giving experience. The assessment, training, and coaching we received were top notch, and equipped us well to become a fruitful congregation. This infrastructure combined with the Covenant’s passion to start healthy, missional churches has enabled us to become a parent church to a number of new church plants.”
