The word ministry means service. It shares a common root with the word minus, so it might be helpful to think of ministry as service to others from below rather than as leadership from above. Ministry at Covenant is coordinated by six teams led by elders and three teams led by deacons. It changes quickly based on need, so we will not spell out every detail on this page. All teams are open to anyone who feels like they may be called to serve.
