General Information

We are living in an unprecedented time, which calls for an unprecedented response. As COVID-19 affects our communities locally, regionally, and globally, we are called to respond collectively as the Evangelical Covenant Church.

As a result, we are announcing the Covenant COVID-19 Financial Relief Initiative, thanks to the collaborative efforts of the Covenant Executive Board, Covenant Ministries of Benevolence, Covenant Offices leaders, and our generous donors.

This initiative will focus on providing care and support in four areas of Covenant life and ministry:

  1. Short-term loans (interest-free) to local churches, conferences, and camps
  2. Global relief grants to the global church as we walk alongside partners serving marginalized people around the world
  3. Missional relief grants to churches so they can help care for their communities in response to this pandemic
  4. Ministers’ Crisis Fund for Covenant clergy, which helps us care for our pastors’ personal needs, such as counseling and health care, or emergency home repairs beyond their local church’s ability to provide

We are deeply grateful for the generosity of our ministry partners, staff, and donors who are making this relief initiative possible. You can support the COVID-19 Financial Relief Initiative at giving.covchurch.org/covid19relief.
