Elder Shepherding and Prayer | The Elders and Lay Shepherds meet each month primarily to pray for you. We consider this a great privilege and calling.

Elder Shepherding 

Covenant Church of Naples Elders are elected by the congregation to provide spiritual leadership, guidance, governance, and encouragement. Some Elders serve in the areas of governance and oversight while others serve as congregational shepherds who personally minister to 8-10 Covenant families. These Shepherding Elders develop personal relationships with each family member to provide guidance for spiritual growth, support, resourcing, and prayer. Elder Shepherds minister to Covenant families through:

  • Personal contact
  • Regular prayer
  • Resourcing families as necessary within the body and with other Covenant ministries
  • Hospital visitation and emergency aid
  • And, if necessary, restoration to the body

Mercy Ministry (Deacon's Ministry)

Covenant Deacons, serve the needs of the body. If you’re in need of assistance, call the church office, 239-597-3464, or click here for more information.
