A Little Bit About Our History...
In July of 1965, a group of pioneers began a new church in Naples. This handful of mostly senior citizens held their first gatherings in a house on a two-lane road in the agricultural land north of downtown. Folks said that they were crazy to buy land so far out of town. They could have hardly imagined that Naples would grow so large that they’d be at its epicenter, that the two-lane road would become a major thoroughfare, and their house turns into an eye-popping campus with stunning buildings and a congregation that is impacting the whole world with one of the most significant mission programs in America.
In its more than fifty years, Covenant Church of Naples / PCA has become a bridge, offering a vibrant gospel message of the Cross, taking people across the gulf that separates sinful people from a Holy God. Covenant is a bridge that takes mission resources and missionaries from here to people across the street and around the world.
Like every bridge, Covenant is anchored in the past, taking us from where we have been. It is anchored in the future, taking us to where we must go. At this fifty-year anniversary, we look back with nostalgia and gratitude at what God has done. We remember the pastors who have poured their lives into this church: Dr. George Knight, Dr. Robert Palmer, Reverend James Conrad, and Dr. Bob Petterson. We think of so many associate pastors, staff, elders, deacons, and committed parishioners who have given their lives and resources to a vision that Covenant could bring the grace and healing of Christ to Naples, America, and the world. We stand on the shoulders of these consecrated servants. Their prayers and labors enrich us today.
