KCM Jubilee Celebrations
Opportunity is priceless, challenging and stimulating. For those who pass it by, there is always a void. For those who grasp it, the accomplishments and memories sometimes have eternal significance. 50 years ago, God put it in the hearts of a small band of people to take hold of the opportunity to start a community fellowship. This fellowship, called Palmetto Community Covenant Church was birthed out of Bethany Evangelical Covenant Church in North Miami and planted inside the Fairway Heights community of south Dade on a donated plot of land.
As Palmetto Community Church grew, so did the challenges of serving a unique and diverse community that was slowly changing from mono cultural to multi cultural. However, Palmetto's commitment to teaching the word of God, making disciples and effective Christian witnessing has remained the same as it has continued the work of the ministry.
With this past commitment remaining, the impact of Palmetto Community Covenant Church now Kingdom Covenant Ministries has been felt throughout the community and throughout the nation as it has produced pastors and leaders and planted churches. The rich history and abiding legacy of this ministry has been celebrated throughout the Southeast Conference and the Evangelical Covenant Church with firsthand reports and early reflections of the uniqueness and commitment of its people to pass on life-giving faith to future generations.
For the past 17 years we have been blessed to be a part of the accomplishments and memories of this great church. We realize however, that these 17 years are only a part of the accomplishments and memories of the past 50 years and are linked to the ministries of the Pastors that have served since the ministry's beginning. These Pastors including our immediate predecessors, Pastor Dave Coryell and Pastor Melvin Dillard were willing to provide seed for a future harvest and were instrumental in helping this church to reach the milestone of this 50th year Jubilee.
As we celebrate this Jubilee year, we are cognizant that Kingdom Covenant Ministries must continue to build on the rich legacy of being a ministry committed to the mission of reaching and winning the lost, nurturing and developing the faithful, transforming and strengthening lives and reflecting the Kingdom of God. The commitment to this mission is essential to us as we reaffirm our dedication to continue leading while participating in the liberating works of this ministry and its historical legacy of eternal significance.
"To God Be the Glory!"
