New Covenant was founded in 1980 by Howard Conine. Pastor Conine spent five of his early years serving as overseer of more than 400 churches and pastors in Central America. Upon returning to the States, he started New Covenant with a vision where people of all races and backgrounds could come together in worship and fellowship. In 1994, David Hutchinson became a member of New Covenant while he was a student at the University of Georgia. He began serving the church as a volunteer youth director when he started sensing the call of God on his life.  After serving as a staff member in the roles of Youth Pastor and Worship Pastor for twenty-two years, David became Senior Pastor in 2016.

New Covenant is the perfect church for people who aren't because of a culture of love and encouragement.  It is a vibrant, growing community of diverse people who love God and love each other. We invite you to see for yourself how refreshing and exciting church can be when people are free to seek God with their whole heart.

What’s Ahead …
