Pastor Stan: Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. I remember it like it was yesterday, at 7 years old I asked Jesus to forgive my sins, to live in my heart and I would follow him. At age 13 and on a mission trip God began to show me the calling of being a shepherd. To love others by bringing them to the Father and walking together as we are going through life.


Mindy: I grew up a missionary kid with New Tribes Mission. But began really experiencing Jesus in my late teens as my Healer and Savior. Since then

it has been my joy to serve in whatever way I could to help people experience God’s ability to transform.

Hope for Covenant Church:

Pastor Stan: To live biblical community in authentic relationships with God

Mindy: We have been so grateful for the love and encouragement we

have found at Covenant, and are thankful to be part of a team that is loving people in genuine community. My hope is that we will continue to grow as a community of Christ followers who are sharing what we have with others.
