Our Covenant of Welcome
We believe persons of every age, race, gender, sexual orientation, immigration status, mental and physical ability, denomination, cultural background, and economic means are vital and integral members of God’s family. We invite everyone to participate in the membership, life, worship, activities, and leadership of this church.
Covenant Baptist Church.
We are a quiet, gentle, thoughtful congregation that gathers for worship and fellowship in Garden Ridge, just northeast of San Antonio, Texas. Covenant is a place of healing for many — a “come-as-you-are” kind of sacred space. We are not in a hurry. We value children. We hope to cultivate a healing environment, honoring stillness and patience. We value prayer, worship, Scriptural education, discipleship in the Way of Jesus Christ, missions, and hospitality (often through shared meals). Our small church sits on a beautiful piece of land with green prayer paths and a stony labyrinth that are open to anyone in need of a quiet place to pray.
The church has commissioned five members as a Pastor Search Team, and the team is receiving resumes at this time. It is our plan to accept resumes through June 30, 2019 and be able to call our pastor before the beginning of the fall school term.
We have been described in many ways as an unusual Baptist church, and it is our desire to retain our distinctive callings and passions while being open to healthy growth and change as we move into this new season of our community life.
Individuals interested in being considered for this calling should send a resume, as well as a cover letter expressing why they believe they would be a good fit for this faith community to, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please pray for us during this time.
