GLOBAL FOCUS

Local, National and International Outreach

Missions have always been at the core of New Covenant Church and we are excited that our program, Global Focus, extends around the world.  We believe the good news of Jesus is the best news in the world and that God has empowered ordinary men, women and children to touch people who don’t have a relationship with Jesus Christ. We choose to reach out to people locally, nationally and internationally by serving, loving, caring and sharing the gospel.

Local and National Missions

We believe God has called the leaders of New Covenant to equip and mobilize our local resources to evangelize our community, state and nation. We provide multiple opportunities every year for the church share their faith as they feed and shelter the homeless, pack meals for starving families around the world, work on a variety of building projects, provide support to our local military families, support activities to stop sex trafficking, and more!

International Missions

New Covenant provides monthly support to eight international partners located across the globe.  We have designated approximately 15% of our annual tithes to fund outreach activities in Thailand, Africa, Germany, India, Philippines and Mexico.  In addition, we support an ongoing outreach to our unreached, unengaged people group, the Mimi Tribe in Chad.
