As we grow larger, it is necessary to repeat and clearly state the values that the core has always held. The New Covenant Road is an example of that attempt to clearly state and repeat the progress we believe all Christians at New Covenant should make. I am working on posters for the wall. But as shepherds, please repeat these values and encourage people to take the next steps.
