Global Gospel Advancement Week

Covenant’s annual Global Gospel Advancement Week will begin on November 10, 2014, with a chapel talk from Jonathan Adam ’10. After graduating from Covenant in 2010, Adam went to Thailand to volunteer and teach English. After involvement with local ministries in the mountains of Northern Thailand, he went on to found Project: Restore, an organization that seeks to empower and resource local people to help local people.


Rev. Dr. Soong-Chan Rah will serve as the primary guest speaker for Global Gospel Advancement Week. Rah is the Milton B. Engebretson Associate Professor of Church Growth and Evangelism at North Park Theological Seminary in Chicago, IL, and the author of The Next Evangelicalism: Freeing the Church from Western Cultural Captivity


Rah earned his BA from Columbia University, an MDiv from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, his ThM from Harvard University, and went on to earn his DMin from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Rah was the founding pastor of Cambridge Community Fellowship Church in Massachusetts, and worked with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship in Boston at MIT for many years. He is a board member for Catalyst Leadership Center and Sojourners/Call to Renewal and is a founding member of the Boston Fellowship of Asian-American Ministers.
