Why We Love This Opportunity *
The vision of Covenant Church is to build a community to reach the community. Covenant Church is committed to being missional, relevant, accessible, relational and transformational. Covenant Church strives to be a place known for what they’re for instead of what they’re against, a safe place for people to explore and discover the greatness of God.
Church or Org Description *
Covenant Church is located in the town of Doylestown, Pennsylvania, about an hour from downtown Philadelphia. Since moving into their new facilities nine years ago, God has caused the church to triple in size so they just completed a 34k square foot building project to handle this growth.
Covenant Church is strategically positioned and poised to continue reaching their community as they become a leading church in the region. Covenant Church’s current facility is a destination campus, drawing hundreds of families from across the Central Bucks area. Their expansive growth in recent years has completely changed Covenant Church’s culture and ethos. They are now a multi-generational church with a healthy mix of baby boomers, young families, and young professionals. Nearly 35% of those now attending have come to Covenant Church within the past three years.
