“I keep coming back to Covenant for the people. I feel like a valued member of the large congregation thanks to my involvement in small groups. The impressive number of groups gives newcomers and members the chance to find a place where they belong.”
West Williams, Class of 2019

“In the hustle and bustle of college life, LiFT provides a monthly out. A night of fellowship and worship to help get through the next few weeks. It’s a place to be filled and a place to make new friends who are in the same season of life as you.”
Kaylah Dasrath, Class of 2019


…and really good coffee.

Monthly, Wednesday Nights, 8:00-9:15 PM
The Market at Coastal Fog
330 Evans Street, Greenville Uptown

PEOPLE WILL WANT TO KNOW WHERE YOU WENT. It could be the peace of knowing you’re not alone on your campus. Maybe it’s the confidence that comes from knowing Jesus. Or, it could be the joy that comes with passionate worship music. No matter, they’ll want to go with you next time because everyone needs a lift.

(dates pending COVID-19 meeting restrictions)

“Lift is valuable for college age people because it opens an opportunity to build community during a time in your life when you need people the most. You have opportunities each month to build sort of a home away from home, where you can learn about the Lord and about how his plans out-do anything we could ever hope for or imagine for ourselves.”
Sarah Wilson, ECU 2019


“I love worshipping at Covenant because I know I’m surrounded by family. We laugh together, cry together and eat together. Nothing gives me greater joy than praising God with the people he’s placed in my life.”
Rachel Koenig, Class of 2021


Saturdays 5:30pm
Sundays 9:15 & 11:00am*
Winterville Campus

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.



You can come to any service. If you’re looking for other college-age people, the majority of our college students join us at 11:00 am service and gather in the sanctuary to the right side of the stage (Stage-left to those who speak theater). Sit with us, you might get pulled into a lunch bunch afterward or even to one our monthly free college luncheons.

“Because college-age individuals are experiencing young adulthood in the age of personal connection through technology, emotional connection is very often a watered-down experience. College luncheons afford the bliss of human interaction in a manner technology fails to replicate.”
Kehinde Olufowobi, Class of 2021



Monthly, Sunday after 11:00 AM Worship
Winterville Campus, Building B

College lunches happen monthly right after worship and connect college students with each other while building a stronger connection with Covenant Church. Join us for worship and then have a great lunch with people as amazing as you. There is no need to RSVP.

We will be back this fall.

And yes, we love to play with our food.

“It’s such an incredible opportunity to work with kids! When God gives the talent and passion to pour into young lives, go for it! You will never be left unfulfilled.”
Hannah Lawson, Class of 2021


It’s your turn now.

You’re ready to step out of the bleachers and meet us on the field but not sure where to start. Click the link below and let us know a little about yourself. Covenant needs your passions, gifts, and availability in multiple arenas.

Let’s find out where yours will take you.


Whether you’re in college or college-age, discover how people like you are finding their place in the life-blood of God’s disciple-making mission at Covenant Church.

What is college-age?

That is a slippery question today. Here are some of the people groups we include at Covenant College Ministry.

  • People dual-enrolled at PCC.
  • People attending PCC and/or ECU.
  • People attending college away from Pitt County.
  • People taking a gap year.
  • People entering directly into the workforce after high school.
  • People who are looking for direction beyond high school.

Covenant College Ministry is committed to helping this rising generation become fully engaged into the life-blood of the vision and mission of Covenant Church.

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.
