Church History

The History of New Covenant Church

New Covenant is a vibrant spirit-filled life-giving church located in the city of Plainfield, New Jersey. Under the leadership of Lead Pastor, Bishop Glen A. Colley and his wife Pastor Leanora A. Colley the church has been through dramatic transformation and growth. When they became pastors of this congregation in 1996 the congregation had only twenty-two members. By the grace of God the congregation experienced metamorphosis and evolved into a dynamic congregation, from a twenty-two member congregation with one nationality, to a multi-cultural movement with members from over 25 countries and growing.

During the past 21 years the church has undergone a name change from Plainfield Church of God to New Covenant Church. This name change better reflects who we are as believers under the new covenant and it also opens our congregation to be identified with not only the city of Plainfield, but the world. We are a multinational congregation fulfilling the great commission in the spirit and power of Pentecost. Our mission is loving anyone from anywhere into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

During the past twenty-one years the church has not only witnessed growth and diversification in its cultural composition, but it has become a significant social agent of change in the community and its environs. The once introverted congregation now engages in several community based outreaches programs.

The church conducts a food pantry which serves over 300 persons per month. It conducts a Farmers’ Market in collaboration with the Community Food Bank of New Jersey and the city of Plainfield. This market provides free fresh fruits and vegetables for residents of Plainfield. There is also annual turkey give away, Christmas toy distribution to under privileged kids in the area and coat distribution in the winter season. These are just some of the social services the church now provides.

From humble beginnings and introversion to an active agent of change in the community and beyond New Covenant is committed to changing the world and having global impact, one person at a time.
