Who We Are
WHY WE EXIST
Covenant Church was founded in 1976 by Pastors Mike and Kathy Hayes in Carrollton, Texas. With just a dream and a promise from God, Covenant Church grew from a single campus in Carrollton to multiple campuses across the DFW Metroplex.
We are a diverse group of people that gathers together to get to know Jesus better. We love to hang out in small groups doing the things we enjoy because we believe that freedom is found through our relationships. We know that God created us for a purpose and we love that the environment of Covenant Church helps us to discover what that purpose is. When we are whole and healthy in our relationship with God and His people, we will be empowered to make a difference in the lives of those around us.
We are excited to get to know you, and invite you to belong to a community of Christ-followers that wants God’s best for each other.
