For the glory of Christ, Covenant Life Church will strive to reach Sarasota for the gospel through making disciples, equipping families and seeking the transformation of the city and of the world.

Our Strategy

We make disciples by

engaging members in life-on-life missional discipleship

preaching and teaching the Bible as the whole counsel of God

encountering God through personal, family, and corporate worship

emphasizing small groups as a place to experience the gospel in community

We equip families to be healthy and grace-filled by

strengthening marriages

encouraging perspective and current adoptive and foster families

preparing singles, married, parents, and grandparents to delight in their God-given roles

training children and students to understand the gospel and to embrace a biblical world and life view

empowering senior citizens to embrace an eternal perspective and to leverage their unique missional mobility

We seek to transform the city by

planting new churches

serving the least, the last and the lost throughout Sarasota

inviting people to engage, that they might experience the redemption and healing offered in the gospel

Our Next Steps

Coming out of the sharing of this vision, here are a few of the practical steps we are taking next...

to equip families

hosting a fostering awareness night for those who would consider fostering or would consider supporting foster families

removing the financial hurdle of camp for student ministry - both middle school and summer camps will be only $99 this summer

planning a family camp to invite families to be together, to laugh together, to make memories together and to encounter the gospel together

hiring an architect to design the future of our campus to be more family-friendly and facilitate our growing children's ministry



to transform the city

planning a birthday celebration for children of fallen heroes (kids who lost a mom or dad serving in the military) in partnership with A Soldier's Child

to transform the city giving to underwrite a billboard and increase hours of ultrasounds available for the Sarasota Medical Pregnancy Center

giving to help students with Youth For Christ go to camp

giving to help students with Young Life go to camp

       planting a church... or at least preparing to do so
