After reading the weekly scripture here, I invite you to be in prayer for vulnerable people around the world (Haiti, Chile, Afganistan, Pakistan, African countries and others from the global south).

Pastor: Rev. Roger D. Hudson

Email Pastor Roger:

As a new arrival (July 2016), Covenant has amazed my wife, Carla and I. Friendly, thinking, serving, and a place in which folk feel welcome because the God of grace is in this place, it is a privilege to begin serving this congregation. I am from South Africa, Carla from Texas (both foreign countries). We have two sons, Staten and Cuyler, who are now making their own way in the world. I begin my day with coffee, walking my two bird dogs where they can point a few birds, daily devotions, breakfast and then I get to come to work. Exposed to extreme violence in S.A., I am passionately interested in the teachings of Jesus, the Prince of Peace. Growing up amongst the amazing wild life of Africa, loving God’s creation is important to me. I believe that Jesus truly does save (“All people need to be saved. All people can be saved. All people can be saved to the utter most.” – John Wesley) and is the hope of all the world.
