Covenant Church of Pittsburgh is actively involved in fulfilling the command of Jesus, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” (Mark 16:15)
We believe missions is a tangible demonstration of a loving relationship with God. It is the lifestyle of the Church, both in the local region and beyond. As our culture and world rapidly experience globalization, it is critical for the body of Christ to be at the forefront with the message of reconciliation by preaching the gospel and caring for the orphan, the widow and the poor. “Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.” (Matthew 25:40) With this as our pursuit, we engage in praying, giving and going.
The Lord has called us to be catalysts of Kingdom influence. God moves in relationship and He is blessed when we honor the unique diversities of the peoples that He has created. We pursue God’s heart and develop gifts of creative expression in order to be vehicles of the healing love of Jesus. We feel a particular calling to equip leaders and to minister to children and youth in crisis.
We support a variety of long-term missions around the world and we are actively involved in effective short-term work. Our water campaign, Covenant Waters Africa, funds the drilling of water wells in areas with desperate need. And yearly, teams go to nations doing short term missions. In these last days we pray for the nations and we take an active part in fulfilling His Great Commission.
Mission Prayer Group (MPG) meets the first Sunday of every month for prayer. It is crucial to our Spirit-filled missions endeavors to voice our requests to God for the nations and for one another. Come join us and see what God is doing through CCOP Missions.
