How We Plant Churches
Are You Called?
In our increasingly post-Christian era, 83 percent of Americans do not attend church. Nearly one-third of young people under 30 are religiously unaffiliated. Every year, more than 3,000 churches close their doors. A myriad of challenges from rapid demographic change to tepid evangelism render churches ineffective in communities across the country.
We invite you to discern your call to advance the kingdom of God by becoming a local church planter. Together, we seek to answer one primary question, “Is the living God calling you to plant a Covenant church right now?”
The Covenant Executive Board (CEB) announces the nomination of Rev. Paul Lessard to serve a second term as executive minister of Start and Strengthen Churches. He will stand for election at the denomination’s 137th Annual Meeting.
