New Covenant Trust Changes It’s Mission

For many years the New Covenant Trust, a subsidiary of the Presbyterian Foundation, has claimed to have a “support for mission.” In the past this mission was limited to “…serve[ing] our clients by maintaining an environment of financial stability while providing professional investment management and trust services to those seeking service, performance, and to create a legacy beyond their lifetime.”

We are proud to be the first to announce that the Trust has decided to add to that mission the Presbyterian’s historic understanding of the Great Ends of the Church. These include:

The proclamation of the gospel for the salvation of humankind
The shelter, nurture, and spiritual fellowship of the children of God
The maintenance of divine worship
The preservation of the truth
The promotion of social righteousness
The exhibition of the Kingdom of Heaven to the world

Here at the Presbytery we commend them on their bold move to social responsibility and spiritual integrity!
