International Focus Areas

Back to Global Outreach home

 

Covenant Church has deep and meaningful partnerships in five international areas:

Dominican Republic | Ethiopia | Greece | India | Lebanon + refugees

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

Dominican Republic

In 1998, Hurricane George brought catastrophic damage to the DR, forcing most of La Romana‘s poorest people to higher ground. This dramatic shift in people became what is now known as “Barrio George.” Since 2005, Covenant has sent well more than a couple dozen teams to the barrios of La Romana in partnership with the Free Methodist Churches of that city. Teams have primarily focused construction, medical and dental clinics, baseball clinics, physical therapy, prayer and support.

INDIA

India

After our first Vision team visited India in March 2016, it was clear that this was an area that we were to invest long-term into. In partnership with the India Gospel League, Covenant is most helping by supporting IGL’s “barefoot” church-planting pastors in the most remote, rural villages of India, as well as their efforts to serve the children and poor of their communities. We have also sent several teaching teams as part of IGL’s discipleship and training initiatives.

LEBANON + REFUGEES

Lebanon + Refugees

In light of the massive amount of turmoil, havoc, and displacement of people that was taking place in the Middle East, specifically the mass exodus of people from Syria into surrounding countries, Covenant knew it was an area of the world in desperate need of compassion and involvement. Thus, after the return of our Vision team in April 2015, we committed to focusing efforts on the Syrian refugee crisis, specifically getting involved with organizations and ministries in Lebanon, Jordan, and Syria. We have since sent numerous teams – medical and for VBS-type camps for refugee kids.
