Covenant Leadership

“Those who guide or direct a group; the act or instance of leading; capacity to lead.”
Facilitating the day-to-day ministries and missions of Covenant requires many to give of their time and talents in ways most never see. Here is a portion of the existing infrastructure that helps all of us do our best for God at Covenant.
