The Gift of Diversity

“There are so many reasons we chose Covenant for our kids. An important factor for our family was diversity. Being a multi-racial family, it was important to us that our children learn alongside those who were both similar and different from themselves. It is such a blessing to know that within the Covenant community, these similarities and differences are bound together by the gospel and celebrated through our mutual love for the Lord.”
