Campus Pastors Welcome Letters

Summerhill Campus Pastor


When New Covenant launched our first worship service back in 2000, the theme that took hold and captured the identity of our church was “It was a place to call home.” For the past eighteen years, thousands of people have come to worship Christ and now call New Covenant “home.” We believe there is a place for you.

Like most, I believe your home is a place where you feel loved, comfortable and accepted. These attributes are at the core of what we hope people experience when they walk through the front doors of our church... Loved as Christ would want us to love you, while offering hospitality that makes one feel comfortable and accepted by our congregation.

From the beginning of New Covenant’s existence, missions have been at the heart of what we “do” in the name of Christ. We believe serving others locally and globally is vital to our church’s growth. God has honored our faithfulness to His call by growing our church. This is reflected in our vision statement and what we believe God has called us to be: “His hands, feet, and voice in the World.”

My hope is that if you are looking to grow in your personal relationship with Jesus Christ and want to serve others, I believe we have something powerful and unique to offer you. Perhaps, you too, will find New Covenant a place to “call home.” I hope to meet you soon.  

Running the Race with Perseverance,


Pastor Harold


Lake Deaton Campus Pastor

Welcome to our website! 

I am so excited about all that is happening within our community!  I hope you will be able to find the answers to your questions about our congregation as you explore these pages.

The Lake Deaton campus was launched in February of 2014 by New Covenant UMC as a satellite campus to connect with people living on the south side of The Villages and along the Wildwood to Leesburg Hwy 44 corridor.   

My hope, as the campus pastor, is that we will do all that we can to establish our congregation as a radically hospitable and safe place for people to grow with Christ, wherever you may find yourself on your spiritual journey.

Through excellent worship, small group communities and opportunities to serve we believe you will find us to be a community to where you can fully engage and find a home among new friends.

If you have any questions as you explore our website, please let us know as we want to help you discover if this is the right congregation for you.
