The Big Give is an annual campaign that helps us reach neighbors near and far, offering help and hope to those who need it most. The initiative is life-breathing for recipients. It can be the difference between nourishment and starvation, flourishing and falling behind. Join us, as we partner with vital organizations that align with our mission and vision.
Since 2006 through the Big Give, Cove Church has donated more than $2.6 million to community and global causes committed to spreading God’s love and healing, tackling issues like human trafficking, poverty and addiction. Our goal is to raise $200,000 between now and January 31, 2023.
This year, our giving focus is “The Least and The Lost” (Matthew 25 and 28). Our recipients will be Lincoln Village Ministry in Huntsville, Pastor John Sinet on Mt. Paka in Kenya and Pastor G in the Mid-South Region (MSR) of Asia. The first $52,500 raised will go to bring our work on Mt. Paka full circle. The remaining funds will be split equally between Lincoln Village Ministry and our newest mission partner, Pastor G.
Lincoln Village Ministry
Lincoln Village Ministry (LVM) has restored a North Huntsville community by acquiring and renovating homes and providing safe and affordable housing for families. Support in every aspect of life helps move families from surviving to thriving. Our donation will allow LVM to purchase additional homes in the “Lincoln North” neighborhood above what their annual budget would have allowed. Congregations from the churches of Cove Church Ministries will help renovate these homes through our monthly 3rd Saturday Serve Day at Lincoln.
Pastor John Sinet
Mt. Paka, Kenya
In 2011, our Big Give raised money to build a well that would bring water to the Pokot tribe on Mt. Paka in Kenya. This well was commissioned in 2014, and the previously nomadic tribe has now settled into a community. In 2019, Cove Church Ministries was able to begin support for Pastor John Sinet to bring living water to the tribe. This year, the pastor has three faith communities that total 300 people that meet under bush arbors and in open fields when the school is not available. He also commutes 90 minutes each way. The money raised for Mt. Paka will build a church and a parsonage so that Pastor Sinet can live and work within the community he so faithfully serves.
MSR of Asia
Pastor G leads a church planting movement in the Mid-South Region of Asia, which has started over 550,000 house churches that have reached more than nine million new believers over the past eight years. This is taking place in the heart of the 10/40 Window, a rectangular, geographic area, stretching from North Africa through the Middle East to Asia. It includes 68 countries and is home to most of the people groups in the world who have never heard the good news of Jesus. The Big Give will provide funding to construct a training center for house church leaders, continuing this incredible disciple-making movement.
