At Christ Covenant we want a vision for both who we are as God's people and what it means to live life in light of this reality.
We believe that everything starts with God's grace. Scripture tells the story of God's faithful and
undeserved grace to a broken world-highlighted by Jesus' life, death, and resurrection. We believe that we must fully rely upon this
grace not only for salvation but also for living every single day. We want to reflect this profound reality in everything we do.
Our first response to God's grace must be profound love for the one who has redeemed us. One
of the best ways we can seek to love, know, and live in relationship with the triune God of Scripture is through his perfect Word.
Because of this, we highly value the preaching, teaching, & studying of the Word.
As we grow with God, we are called to grow in our love for others.This starts in the church. If
the church doesn't know and love one another-how can we love those who do not share our beliefs? Because of this we value the
building of genuine community within our church through various ministries.
"& All People"
However, our love can't stop inside the walls of the church. We are called to share Christ's
love with all people-no matter how similar or different they are from us. And so, as a church, we are seeking to grow in our efforts
to share Jesus' love both spiritually and physically in Leoti and beyond.
In all that we do as a church body, we hope to live in light of Christ's redeeming grace so that we might love our Savior, love our church, and love our neighbors both near and far.
Stephen, Morgan, Parker, & Garrett joined us at Christ Covenant in January 2014. Growing up in Kansas City, Stephen first sensed a call
to pastoral ministry in early high school. In addition to serving in suburban Kansas City, Stephen has also lived and served in urban
St. Louis and rural Iowa. When it comes to ministry, Stephen is learning that absolutely everything centers around the grace that
is found in Christ Jesus. Stephen loves sports, good barbecue, and fresh air. Stephen earned his Master of Divinity at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis,
MO. He'd love to meet you if he already hasn't! Please shoot him an email or drop by!
