Local Partners

We are local missionaries.

Through serving and volunteering with local partner ministries and other community organizations, as an alternative to starting our own community ministries at Covenant Church, we encourage our people to be light and salt in the communities they serve, while bringing hope through compassion and care.

  • That the Lord will show us where and how to get involved.
  • That our word and actions would be a testimony to God’s love and goodness.
  • That God would multiply our efforts to impact Pitt and Beaufort Counties with the love of Jesus.
