I lead the Commission by facilitating meetings, collaborating with denominational offices, and communicating successes and needs to outside stakeholders. I also coordinate membership, email newsletters, and social media for “Friends of Covenant History” a historical society sponsored by the Commission.
In the past few years, we have worked on a few major projects:
- Worked with a professional translator and outsider reviewers to translate two historical guides into Spanish.
- Coordinated logistics and outreach to support events relevant to Covenant history and identity.
