Greater is great in size which means there are a lot of great ways for you to have Greater involvement.
This is a place where you can disguise your gifts behind the large crowd and almost feel overlooked. However, we believe that at Greater you must be Greatly Involved to experience God’s optimal best in your life. We realize that what the Lord is doing here is significant, and we undoubtedly want you apart. Our greatest desire is that you have a Greater connection with those whom you fellowship with and build fulfilling relationships and community.
At Greater, we don’t focus on numbers increase but play emphasis on “Greater Involvement.” Thus, there are a variety of ways to participate and become apart of what we are embracing here at “Greater.”

Marriage on Purpose
Covenants are the highest form of agreement. Godly marriages between a husband and a wife are a blessing and are ordained by God. Marriages can be challenging while fulfilling which is why Greater Covenant Ministry is designed to have seasoned couples mentor other couples to not just maintain a marriage but to be fruitful, multiply and find restoration in one another to fulfill God’s plan for marriage. In a world where divorce is so widely accepted and the sanctity of marriage is so tainted it is necessary for Godly couples to boldly and correctly represent the institution of marriage.
