A Note From the Rector

Dear saints,

You will read below words from the Executive Director of Covenant Community, Johnathan Davis, that he is leaving All Saints’ to take up an exciting new role in Washington D.C. It is certainly their gain. Through Johnathan’s years of leadership at Covenant, a successful campaign to raise the funds to purchase and furnish Sterne House was completed, giving the men of Covenant a beautiful transitional place to call home between their residency on the block and the beginning off their next chapter of life. On the block, the program has grown tremendously with the piloting of a Recovery Community Organization, offering programs for hundreds of people per month. We give thanks for Johnathan, and we give thanks for the miracles this parish has been witness to because of Covenant’s mission and ministry. Forty years ago this church opened a night shelter. Ten years later it became Covenant Community, which today can look to so many families whose lives have been changed for the better because the people of All Saints’ said yes. So, as we say yes with thanksgiving for Johnathan’s legacy at Covenant, may we say yes to the future God calls us into with this work. The miracle is still happening on and off the block. Praise be to God for that indescribable gift.

Peace,

A Note from Johnathan Davis, Executive Director of Covenant Community

September 12, 2016 began a new world for me. It was my first day as Director of Covenant Community. I remember waking up that morning full of excitement and with a ton of butterflies in my stomach. It was my first time back in the nonprofit arena after several years in state government and my first time being the person signing the checks. Greeted with smiles, hugs, BBQ and macaroni and cheese, I knew this was the place for me.

However, the invitation to this new world didn’t stop there. I begin to meet a host of people who were passionate about the work of Covenant and who were parishioners of the church behind us. More food, more smiles, more hugs but not enough macaroni and cheese. However, I felt at home. I felt that God had called me to a place that was layered with a community of love, faith and camaraderie.

Over the past 4 years, I’ve seen Covenant and All Saints’ partner in ways that has literally saved lives. And it has been absolutely a privilege to be a part of that work!

With sadness and great joy, I have decided to relocate to Washington, D.C. I’ve been appointed as Deputy Administrator for the Dept. of Human Services in D.C. I will be working within the District to reform its homelessness and social service systems. I will greatly appreciate your thoughts and prayers as I begin another new world. Please know that I am forever thankful for the love that has been shown to me and the care in which All Saints have had for Covenant throughout the years.

The board and staff at Covenant remain committed and passionate for the work and is preparing the way for a new Director. We would greatly appreciate your prayers during this process.

Covenant and All Saints’… such well-timed grace for our city!
This is definitely not a good bye… and I will see you all for online services!

Beware of Email Phishing Scams
Beware of fake emails from people who impersonate our clergy and members of our community. These emails typically ask for an urgent favor and then ask you to purchase gift cards. Do not respond. Please report these messages and fake email addresses to your email provider. Learn more at allsaintsatlanta.org/email-scam.
