During Sunday services at Covenant Life Church this morning, Joshua Harris announced that later this spring he will step down from his role as lead pastor of Covenant Life Church in order to attend seminary at Regent College in Vancouver, B.C. Currently, he plans to study at Regent for at least a year.

As preparation for fruitfulness in the next years of his ministry, Joshua believes he needs to step away from the responsibilities of senior leadership and seek to grow through formal studies.

As the elders of Covenant Life, we wholeheartedly support Joshua in this decision. We are excited for him and the ministry opportunities we expect God will open for him. He has served the people of Covenant Life with faithfulness and distinction for 17 years, always pointing us to the glory of God revealed in the gospel of Jesus Christ. Therefore, our unbridled enthusiasm for Joshua’s future is mixed with a deep sense of loss and sadness to see him go.

Joshua will be actively involved here through mid-April in his roles as elder and preacher and will then continue to participate in Covenant Life as a member until he relocates in June. He will go west with the love and blessing of the elders and congregation of Covenant Life. We look forward to maintaining our relationship so that we can continue to partner as the Lord leads.
