We are committed to pursuing compassion and justice through our world. From our inception the Covenant has been concerned with helping hurting people (love mercy), and addressing the causes of that hurt (do justice). From a biblically rooted perspective, we provide tangible ways of extending the love of Jesus in deed as well as work, and speak as advocates. Through various ministries, we work to bring the love of Christ and the justice of God’s kingdom to the marginalized, the powerless, and the oppressed.
