Covenant Community Care was pleased to host CCHF (Christan Community Health Fellowship) Board of Directors for their annual meeting this month.
CCHF shared, "...The board toured their Michigan Avenue site which offers medical, dental, a pregnancy center, behavioral health, and outpatient substance abuse services. After morning prayer with patients and staff they met with Bob Hoey, one of the original founders, and Joslyn Pettway, who named CEO just before COVID hit.
While in the area, Steve visited a prayer/discipleship group hosted by Kelsey and Chad Thompson. Kelsey is a dentist and Chad is a family medicine doc. They help lead a dental residency and the Fellowship Plus program that is a collaboration between CMDA and Covenant Community. Their prayer group is made up of doctors, dentists and nurses who have relocated to Dearborn and Hamtramck, two communities outside of Detroit where most of the neighbors are middle-eastern immigrants. On this night the group spent most of their time praying for the arrival of Afghan immigrants coming to America.
The CCHF board was greatly encouraged to learn how God has grown Covenant Community Care over the past two decades. Pastor Bob and Joslyn shared story after story of how God answered prayers and performed miracles at critical times."
This month marks the fourteen-year anniversary of Covenant Community Care receiving Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) funding from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Covenant’s Virginia Parker, with the organization then and now recalled the amazing story.
