Reach Sarasota

make disciples • equip families • transform the city

our vision

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 plan to make mature and equipped disciples of Christ by:

  • Discipling members in life-on-life missional discipleship
  • Preaching and teaching the Bible as the whole counsel of God
  • Emphasizing small groups as places to experience the gospel in community
  • Encountering God through personal, family and corporate worship

We plan to equip families to be healthy and grace-filled by:

  • Strengthening marriages
  • Training children and youth to understand the gospel and to embrace a biblical world and life view
  • Encouraging adoptive and foster families, and those considering adoption
  • Preparing singles, married, parents and grandparents to delight in their God-given roles and to fulfill their God-given responsibilities
  • Empowering seniors to embrace an eternal perspective and to leverage their unique missional mobility

We plan to seek the transformation of the city by:

  • Planting new churches
  • Serving the least, the last and the lost throughout Sarasota
  • Inviting people to engage with their life story that they might experience the redemption and healing offered in the gospel

what are we doing next

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 considering fostering or would considering 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 

  • Partnering with local ministries to make a big impact
  • 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
  • Planting a church... or at least preparing to do so
