Training Opportunities

Perspectives Course

www.perspectives.org 

Kinston and Greenville Perspectives is a 15-week discipleship course that looks at God’s mission through four vantage points or “perspectives” — Biblical, Historical, Cultural and Strategic. Each one highlights different aspects of God’s global purpose. The course is taught by 15 different instructors, spanning from foreign missionaries to theological professors. Each week there are readings and assignments, as well as a discussion and lecture time in class. By taking the course, you’ll determine how God is using His people to bless all the peoples of the earth with the Good News of Jesus Christ!

Secret Church

www.radical.net

Secret Church is a version of “house church” where people meet for an intense time of Bible study— lasting 6+ hours—including a time of prayer for our brothers and sisters across the globe who are facing persecution and for those who have not heard the gospel. There is a great need to pray and come alongside our brothers and sisters who live in places around the world where there is little to no gospel witness or where the gospel is met with resistance.

 

Reaching out to Muslims

We offer training at Covenant from time to time about reaching Muslims in our own neighborhoods and in our workplaces. You’ll learn about the history of Islam, what Muslims believe and how to start a conversation and be in a friendship with a Muslim.

Business as Missions / Business for Transformation

Business as Mission (BAM) is for-profit business endeavors deliberately focused on God’s transformation of people, groups and nations. People engaging in BAM can enter restricted nations as a business person while also being a witness for God. BAM takes many forms: micro-financing, job creation, tent making, wealth creation, information technology development and capital investments. As these dynamic forms of business operate they also focus on transformation through church planting, discipleship, social development, witness, and social change in communities.

 

Outreach Library

We have a small library in the lobby of Building B next to the Student Center that focuses on missions, evangelism, discipleship and reaching the nations.  Feel free to check it out!
