Missionary Care Team
The purpose of the missionary care team is to provide relational, spiritual and emotional support to our missionaries so that they are fully empowered to fulfill God’s missional calling on their lives. This team is not about helping missionaries raise financial support, but about helping missionaries know that they are relationally connected to and emotionally and spiritually empowered by Covenant Church. This team focuses on three things for missionaries. First, we think strategically about how more people at Covenant can be involved in missionary care. Second, we are relationally supportive of our missionaries. We intentionally plan ways to stay in touch with missionaries through texting, skyping, calling or other social media means. Last, we are advocating for missionaries. We will ‘go to bat’ so to speak for the missionary by promoting them in our small groups and getting others connected to and praying for them. We have 19 missionary units supported at Covenant, so we have lots of advocating to do!

Missionary Advocate Teams
We are in the process to create Missionary Advocate Teams (MAT’s) for each of our missionary units. In a sentence, these teams, each with a point person, will care for and represent our missionary units by praying, contextually communicating, promoting, debriefing and listening to them.
