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 Week 2021
Every year, we spotlight one of Covenant EFC’s 5 strategic thrusts. This year, Home Missions is under that spotlight!
One third of the people living in Singapore are foreigners, and they are in our midst as “neighbours”. Covenant EFC reaches out to the foreigners in our midst via our Home Missions thrust. Through the outreach effort over the years, various All Nations Fellowships have been formed.
Home Missions in Covenant EFC refers to the Indonesian, Filipino, China Nationals, Tamil and Bangladeshi Fellowships that meet every Sunday in our worship centres and other places. Home Missions also reaches out to the International Students attending our universities as well as the Migrant Workers in the dormitories.
In Home Missions we create a space where our “neighbours” have a home away from home. Here they encounter Jesus, are discipled and return to their hometown as a disciplemaker.
Hence, this year’s Missions Week theme is Missions@Home: From Neighbours to Nations.
