Pastor of Student Ministries
Covenant Church

Doylestown, Pennsylvania

The staff at Covenant Church is aware of the need for a new infusion of spiritual passion and leadership for the student ministries. Currently, Covenant is hoping to see an emphasis on relationship building within the ministry. A real strength they’re looking for in the ideal candidate is someone who can help build a culture to make outsiders feel like insiders. This means being intentional about the events on the calendar and the content/teaching delivered through small group and large group gatherings. 

Covenant is committed to finding a passionate leader who recognizes they have a very limited amount of time to teach students why Jesus is WORTH following. This new student ministry hire will be responsible for bringing focus, strategy and overall leadership to student ministry at Covenant Church.

Church Description

Taking a simple approach to ministry—to humbly, faithfully and diligently follow God’s will at every turn and new chapter, Covenant Church is quick to give God the glory for all He has done in growing the church and transforming people’s lives. Their leadership remains anchored to their unique identity and calling while stewarding their resources to reach an increasing number of people who call Covenant Church home. 

Current senior pastor, Bob Myers, came to Covenant Church in 2002. The congregation began to grow and moved to their current facility in March 2008. Immediately upon moving to this location, the number of attendees increased and ever since, has experienced steady and substantial growth. Currently, Covenant is taking courageous steps to be BOLDER in their Vision, Faith, and Impact. As they continue to look outward in mission and forward to the future, they see their building as one of the tools God’s given them to expand the footprint of the Gospel in the community boldly.

With a strong desire to reach Doylestown with the hope of the Gospel and to see the movement of God continue, never has there been more at stake in terms of Covenant’s continued expansion and momentum.
