Welcome to Covenant Cares
Covenant Cares is your place to engage and connect with God’s work in the world. The Evangelical Covenant Church is more than a network of churches–we are mission friends joining God in making things right in our broken world. We are made up of people like you who faithfully answer the call of Christ to partner together in shared mission.
We have four main categories reflecting the holistic ministry of the Evangelical Covenant Church. Select a category below to learn how you can connect with each one:
Caring for Families
Healthy families result in healthier communities. These gifts transform families both at home and around the world. Additionally, agriculture helps families become more food secure. Explore the ways you can help provide families with source of income and providing education for their children.
“Education is one of the best economic investments available, with returns of $10 to $15 on the dollar.”
Caring for Neighbors
When Jesus calls us to love our neighbors that means caring for those next door and across the globe. This category offers ways to improve lives through giving “for God’s glory, and neighbor’s good.” See how you can help provide for those that are recovering from hardships and empower them to being and sustain small businesses.
“The microenterprise group has allowed me to take part in non-domestic decisions for the first time. Now I can borrow money from the group whenever my shop is at risk. I no longer worry for my children.”
– Sabaah from Somalia
Caring for Communities
We know that people understand their own communities best. We listen to our neighbors and learn how we can help them access the resources they need to flourish and thrive. Here are many ways to connect with communities through sustainable support.
“When [Western] doctors visit, they can treat people, but they will go home. Through training, we can improve our skills. We can care for our own people.”
– Anne Marie Zuku from DR Congo
Caring for The Church
We know that Jesus established the church to be Christ’s representative in the world. Called by God, we join together to love God, love our neighbors, and make disciples. Invest in pastors, develop new leaders, strengthen congregations–here are ways to directly support the work of the local church.
“83% of Americans do not attend church on any given weekend. Church planting is the most effective way to reach the unchurched for Christ.”
