Covenant Missions

Missions exists because worship doesn’t. The mission of Covenant EFC is to return the Church to its disciplemaking roots with a clear purpose of multiplying disciples in order to win the world for Christ. Here in Covenant EFC Missions, we embark on the twin platform of Intentional Disciplemaking Movement and 5 Missional Thrusts. In the Intentional Disciplemaking Movement effort, we partner with churches and agencies to transform churches to plant and multiply disciplemaking church plants (DCPs). The 5 Missional Thrusts serve as an evangelistic platform for Covenant EFC to reach out to cross-cultural communities locally and overseas with the Gospel message to plant DCPs. The 5 Missional Thrusts are Home Missions, Urban Missions, Business as Missions (BAM), E-Missions, and The Next Generation (TNG) Missions. You can find out more about each thrust in this microsite.

Missions Month 2022

Matthew 9:35-38

35 And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; 38 therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

4 key ideas surfaced as the Missions Office reflected and prayed over the verses

  • Harvest is ready.
  • Jesus is filled with compassion upon seeing the crowd (their helplessness and harassment).
  • Jesus asked his disciples to pray earnestly.
  • Send out laborers to the Harvest field.

Arising from Matthew 9:35-38 the message “The Harvest is Now” is clear.

As The Harvest is Now, we need to focus on 3 areas: Pray, Love and Go.

Each year we also focus on one of the thrusts. This year we focus on Urban and E-Missions Thrusts. When we overlap the 3 areas of focus over the 2 thrusts we would like to call the people to the following actionables:

    3. Personal Prayer – every month in our Devotional Journal there is a segment on Missions Prayer. Be on bended knees to intercede for the nations and the workers in the field.
  2. Love
