Disciples who make disciples who make disciples.
Why “disciples who make disciples who make disciples”?
Covenant College Ministry is committed to discipling college-age people within the walls of the local church. And we are engaged in equipping others to disciple people outside of the church at PCC, ECU, and the medical schools. Our most magnificent vision, though, is to deploy disciple-makers into all the nations making disciples that we may never see on this side of eternity.
Our small groups are committed to helping people:
- Know their ID in Christ
- Increase their daily intimacy with God
- Engage God’s mission through the local church
- Transform their personal relationships
- Identify and employ their gifts, strengths, and passions
All this happens in the context of authentic relationships.

“Being in a small group brought me to some of the coolest people I could have ever met and made me realize that you need a group of people to do life with.”
-Bailey Giles, ECU 2019
Saturdays @ 5:30pm
Sundays @ 9:15 & 11:00am*
We worship every weekend at the Winterville campus as a family. We could not create anything more powerful or beautiful than the local church. It’s where we:
- Meet all the generations of our church to worship as a family.
- Worship through the gift of music, Word, prayer, and sacraments.
- Are challenged and changed by the Word of God.
- Discover our next step as part of God’s mission in the local church.
That’s why we invite all college-age people to take their place in the mission and leadership of the church.
*The majority of our college students join us at 11:00am service and gather in the sanctuary to the right side of the stage. Join us, you might get pulled into a lunch bunch afterward or even to one our monthly free college luncheons.
Monthly | Wed | June 16, July 11
Winterville Campus | House 2
Worship nights are a time to carve out a space for the community that is centered around worship through music. We spend time singing about God’s goodness and faithfulness along with encouraging each other with words from the God’s word. It is also an opportunity for us to spend time with God and better our relationship with Him. The more we spend time with God, the more we get to know Him, and the more we get to know Him, the more we start to look like Him.
Many of us will step out of the bleachers and onto the field someday. But most of us don’t realize how easy and fun it is. Look through these opportunities and find your place on the field at Covenant.

Making disciples of our little people
Each generation is called to pour into the next in order to make disciples. CovenantKids offers opportunities to serve children ages two months through 5th grade, and they have a special needs ministry called Chipper’s Champs. College students bring a great energy and vibe to the ministry that causes kids to want to connect with them allowing students to be a strong voice in a child’s life.

STUDENTS | Covenant Students
Cultivating a community of discipleship for students.
Middle school and high school students have energy, passion, and an incredible need for people who will step into their lives and point them to Jesus. We are looking for people who are willing to spend their time investing in teenagers on a weekly basis. If you are following Jesus and want to see the middle school and high school students of Covenant Church follow Him too, we would love to talk to you.

The marketplace has always been level ground for people of all races, religious backgrounds, genders, and beliefs. That’s why both Jesus and Paul did the majority of their ministry there, to meet people where they already were regardless of who they were.
LIFT is a place where, regardless of where you’re from, what school you attend, or who you are, you are invited to meet people who love and follow Jesus, maybe even for the first time. It’s a place where live music infused with a Spirit that makes it more than music. You’ll hear stories that reflect your story. Most of all, LIFT could be a place where God starts something new in your heart.
If you are looking for just such a place or have a friend you would like to bring, please join us.
How else can we serve you?
Covenant Church is quickly becoming the church home for college-age people from across town and the world. It happens everytime someone finds their place in God’s mission at Covenant. Contact me and let me know how I can help you find yours.
