I embarked on my Eurovision experience with great anticipation. For over 25 years I have served as a Covenant pastor in the Central Conference and I have always been impressed and supportive of our denomination’s outreach through Covenant World Mission. Serving in two Covenant churches in the metro Chicago area, I have had the opportunity to get to know personally some of our Covenant missionaries, including several of those currently serving in Europe. When the Covenant announced the Eurovision trip in 2010, I knew I wanted to go so that I could experience their ministries first hand and come to understand the blessings and challenges of their particular context. I felt this would enable me to be more supportive of them as a Covenant pastor and a better advocate for Covenant World Mission with my congregation. I was not disappointed!
