How We Serve
We join God in God’s mission to see more disciples among more populations in a more caring and just world. We pursue this through five strategic priorities:
THE 136TH COVENANT ANNUAL MEETING
June 23 - 25 | Kansas City
Gather facilitates annual Covenant connections through the 136th Covenant Annual Meeting, Ministerium Annual Meeting and Vocation Development, and the Ordination Service. Together we will continue to fulfill the mission of the Covenant through this important time of communal discernment.
