New Corporation Will Expand Services to Affiliates and Churches
CHICAGO, May 1, 2010—Covenant Ministries of Benevolence created a new corporation called Covenant Initiates for Care (CIC) to structure the diverse services it provides to a growing family of small affiliate ministries.
With the new structure, CMB will be able to expand the resources available to the ministries; generate additional ideas for planning, funding and operations; and provide systems to ensure that the ministries are both accountable and sustainable. It will continue to provide financial reporting, fund development, strategic planning, marketing and board development expertise.
By marshaling the resources of CMB, Covenant Initiates for Care will help local churches start or expand ministries by:
- Providing grants for small projects
- Helping church committees develop ministries
- Working with church groups to research and develop potential ministries
The existing Covenant Enabling Residences for developmentally disabled adults, the domestic violence ministry of Chicago’s WellSpring Center for Hope, the Children’s Home of Cromwell, Cromwell, Conn., and Covenant Children’s Ministries, Princeton, Ill., will be administered under the new corporation.
