DESCRIPTION:

 

COVENANT CHURCH – DOYLESTOWN, PA


Position:  Pastor of Student Ministries


Worship Style – Contemporary/Three weekend worship services

 

Church size – 1,400

 

Covenant Church is located in Bucks County in the town of Doylestown, Pennsylvania and about an hour from downtown Philadelphia. Since moving into their new facilities nine years ago, God has caused them to triple in size so that they’ve reached a saturation point and are now poised for their next expansion to double their 34,000 square foot facility. Student ministries has contributed significantly to this growth by unleashing students with a powerful encounter with Jesus to reach schoolmates among the three high schools in Central Bucks. Motivated by a ruling passion for Jesus, they’re looking to engage those they encounter at work, home and play with the unchanging good news communicated and lived out in ever-changing and modern ways.

 

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. 

 

Church Motto: “Deeply flawed, but more deeply loved”

 

Leadership at Covenant Church says this about their motto, “This motto is an effective way to remind ourselves that we are a community formed and sustained by the grace of Christ. Unbelievers are sometimes quite surprised that we acknowledge what they know about us up front (our flaws), and this removes the us/them sense that often spoils a gospel witness with a myth of superiority and self-righteousness.” 

 

Covenant Church is a staff-led and Elder-governed church. Lead Pastor Bob Myers began working at Covenant in 2002. His teaching style is expositional in delivery while maintaining a conversational tone. His immediately apparent balance of transparency and methodical teaching invites people to follow Jesus while challenging them to take the next step toward a surrendered life.
