General Covenant Statement

Adopted April 24, 2018:

The covenant between Asbury and Joining Hands Mission United Methodist Churches serves as a foundation for our coexistence on the Thys Road campus.

Even though this arrangement consists of two individual congregations sharing space, we recognize that as a community of disciples, we can collectively do more to serve the community than either of us could do individually. The evolution of relationships will foster increased cooperative activities.

We understand that change is challenging. We therefore endeavor to respond prayerfully and act thoughtfully in consideration of all concerned.

Moreover, we promise to: support multiple approaches to ministry; respect each others’ differences; and honor our mutual desire to grow in faith.
