As an intentional disciplemaking church, Covenant EFC believes that everyone who is a disciple of Christ is also called to make disciples of Christ. Our small groups, called Covenant Groups (CGs), are the essential base for disciplemaking, where much of the discipleship and disciplemaking takes place.
Our CGs are covenantal communities, comprising followers of Jesus, who embrace their identities as both authentic disciples and intentional disciplemakers. By this, we purpose to follow Jesus, and to help others to follow Jesus. As spiritual communities, then, we covenant together to grow in spiritual maturity, and to practice spiritual multiplication of our lives in the lives of others. The CG community is therefore every member’s primary circle of spiritual family, pastoral care, fellowship and ministry to one another.
What are our CGs like? We have groups who are journeying together through the same life stage, as well as those more inter-generational in composition. CGs typically meet weekly in mutual commitment and accountability. The pastoral care of the CG is shepherded by a Zone Mentor, and zones are grouped under the spiritual covering of a District Mentor.
