Who We Are

REAL PEOPLE

We are real people with a desire to find community with others. At CL we provide multiple avenues in which people can connect and become family. Our heart is to create an atmosphere of acceptance through love. Driven to reach, restore, love and connect people to God, CL is dedicated to excellence in discipleship and fellowship. We are committed to developing strong families and strong people.

REAL PASSION

We serve with real passion as Jesus did. As missionaries, the people of CL will compassionately embrace every opportunity to provide hope, help and healing to our communities, neighborhoods, homes, prisons, and hospitals in every capacity. Through our fully equipped outreach center, people will receive help in times of need and training on how to connect with the heart of God through serving others as well. As we grow in the grace and favor of God, we will raise up and train others to go and passionately establish churchplants with well trained and trusted leaders.

REAL FAITH

We possess an authentic faith, based on the absolute promises of God’s powerful Word. Understanding that a heart for worship, prayer, reading and living out the Word of God is the foundation for any successful believer, CL is passionate about connecting real people with a real God. Our heart is to develop believers of all ages to walk in the freedom and purposes of Christ for their lives. As men and women of diverse backgrounds encounter the Holy Spirit through real worship experiences, they will discover healing and restoration for their pasts, refreshing for the present, and power to fulfill their dreams for tomorrow.

REAL LIFE

We will live a real life through the presence of the Holy Spirit. At CL we believe that the fruit of the Spirit, gifts of the Spirit and power of the Spirit are evidence that a believer is maximizing their full potential in Christ. The family of CL will grow to understand that the ultimate way to live life is to give life to others. We will be a church of extravagant giving to our community. As we sow into the lives of others, we believe that CL will become a place of miracles, deliverance, repentance and truly a place where God makes all impossibilities possible

Meet Pastor Chant

Lead Pastor

Growing up in the small fishing village of Louisburg, Nova Scotia along with my parents and seven siblings I never imagined that God could use me. I grew up in church but didn’t make a commitment to the Lord until age 23 when He delivered me from a life of drug abuse. Jesus Christ radically changed my life!

I immediately felt an urgency to help others trapped in lives of depravity and addiction. This led me into a calling to full time ministry. God began opening doors for me to share my testimony during street evangelism and outreach situations in which Christ was able to make an impact on the lives of troubled teens that shared my previous addictions to drugs and alcohol. My work with street kids eventually led to a position as Provincial Youth Director of the Maritime Provinces.

While serving as an Evangelist in 1994, after much prayer and fasting, my wife and I left our home and moved to the United States where I served the East Calhoun Church of God as Youth Pastor, Administrative Pastor and Worship Leader. We have been blessed to be a part of many revivals and outpourings of God’s presence with manifestations of supernatural healings, deliverance and salvation.

In 2000 God called us once again into another level of ministry when my family and I became the Senior Pastors of Covenant Life. For many years we have seen God change and transform many lives and move in dynamic ways as we have responded with faith to His call. My desire is that Covenant be a dynamic, multi-cultural church that burns with a passion to reach this generation by any means necessary.
