The primary goal for the elders at Covenant Church is to strengthen the relationship between our church and our missionaries, that we might adequately care for them while on the field and that they might sharpen our desire to see unbelievers reached for Christ.
Practically, this means that our primary approach is to cover as much as we can of our missionaries’ financial needs so that they can focus their time and energy on their ministry rather than on raising support.
When our missionaries are home, we care for their spiritual and physical needs. When they are away, we speak with them regularly and highlight their activity through various avenues so that our people can stay abreast of their progress and enter into their work by praying for them. Our role does not replace the work of mission agencies, but we seek to provide our missionaries with ongoing care in one place so that the missionary isn't preoccupied with raising more funding and wearing themselves out before going back to the field.
