"A Word from The Moderator"
I conclude by sharing that we are very close to a benchmark of 100 Covenant Partners as we move towards our goal of 1000 Covenant Partners by 2022. We have exemplified good stewardship by restricting a percentage of Covenant Partner revenue towards Mission, Education and Evangelism. Our next benchmark is 150 partners by the February Annual Session.
Join us, if you have not already, in impacting Kingdom building by becoming a Covenant Partner today!
Our aim is simple. We vow to detach ourselves from the perception of “begging, begging, begging” with “offering after offering after offering.” A Covenant Partner member will feel no pressure from the moderators or presidents during the time of our traditional convocation offering settings to “give, give, and give again.” The offering setting becomes an opportunity for payments toward the yearly pledge and receipt of gifts from non-Covenant Partner members.
Your Brother in Our Christ,
Moderator Toby T. Philpart
