Building Great Churches Together

Churches in Covenant International began with a desire to help pastors connect relationally with like-minded peers; learn and develop personally and ministerially; while multiplying the impact of their local church ministry to touch the world.  From more than 40 years of thriving ministry experience, Dr. Mike and Kathy Hayes' vision to impart wisdom and practical strategy grew to a network of leaders around the country who have linked arm-in-arm with a common vision to extend the Kingdom of God in every city and sector of society.  CIC is NOT a denomination, or a 'ministry fellowship,' but is a relationship-centered network of churches and ministries united to strengthen pastors, build the Church, and extend the Kingdom.
