The MCP has been such a blessing for me while being at Covenant. It's great having a place where you can intentionally meet people of various backgrounds without fear of feeling unwanted. You have Americans, internationals, and third-cultures all intermingling at our various events creating a fun dynamic! I'm excited to continue small group bible studies and hearing different people's takeaways based off their specific upbringings. Stop by and say hi if you're ever passing by Carter 52, I like the company!

I am so excited for the opportunity to meet and interact with everyone on the MCP as well as welcome those who would like to be a part of it this year! What I love most about the MCP is how the connections between students and different cultures on campus allows God’s creativity to truly be shared and appreciated. I am looking forward to greeting everyone and organizing the fun events we have planned for this semester!

One of my favorite things about the MCP has been how it is a place where people with such different experiences and backgrounds can come together to form beautiful, God-glorifying friendships. It’s also been such a place of personal growth and learning about my cultural backgrounds. I’m so excited to work with the MCP this year and reach out to the students to share all these experiences with them.

I am so excited to continue working for the MCP because it is so beautiful seeing people explore their own cultures and share them with others on campus. It is even more beautiful because it gives me a deeper understanding of God’s love for His people on earth. I am looking forward to meeting the new students and helping them quickly feel at home here.

Hey:) I am really excited to work for the MCP because cultures are beautiful and we don’t really realize how unique they are until we live somewhere else. The MCP has changed my Covenant experience and made it so much richer. I can’t wait to further explore our differences because I believe God designed us this way for a reason.

I look forward to walking alongside (with my fellow MCP leaders) the incoming international students and helping them adjust to a new life in the States. I also look forward to maintaining and improving the multicultural community that we have at Covenant (through our traditional events and maybe through some new ones as well), and I look forward to growing together in the Lord through fun and unexpected ways.

“One of my favorite events at Covenant is Culture Fest. I really enjoyed spending time with people and learning more about their different backgrounds and experiences they went through. Playing the Indonesian instrument called “Angklung” with Chi Xin, Davy, Joy, Gaby, Nicholas, John, Senri, Max, Esther, Ella, Ismael, and Mark has been one of the highlights because I enjoyed getting to know more about them through practicing and performing together. I was also excited to share the foods from back home to people here because I feel food can be one of the best ways to know other people’s culture.”

“I enjoy being a part of the Multicultural Program, which has given me the opportunity to interact with people from diverse cultural backgrounds and participate in many events across the campus. I also enjoy the hall/residence life in which I have found a great community.”
