Hi my name is Katie Pithan and I am the administrative assistant at Covenant Christian Church. I have 2 daughters, Jennifer & Jaime and an amazing husband named Pat. I am a retired teacher from the Urbandale/Des Moines School Districts. I love to garden, go for walks and ride in our boat on nice days. I feel very blessed to have met so many wonderful people here at Covenant Christian Church since I started working here in the Spring 2019.

I write today to introduce myself to you and to share a thought or two regarding my desire to serve alongside you in your ongoing witness in the love of God made known to us in Jesus Christ.
Perhaps some of you remember my wife Mary and me from the not too distant past when we worshiped with you.
In those experiences I have seen your love for one another, your desire to make faith relevant and purposeful within the community, and your determination to explore and venture into new expressions of being church.
I know that you have a deep commitment to welcoming and sustaining grace for all who gather and share in this holy journey, vibrant faith that brings honest and authentic conversations, freedom for all to find a path that brings faith into action, and a spirit that is not defined by the numbers but by the possibilities to which God is calling.
As your pastor I would be honored, challenged and enlivened to be a part of such a ministry. I believe in this community. The world needs Covenant Christian Church and it would be an honor to serve, care, dream and become alongside you.
Grace and Peace,
Loren Strait
