Gregory and Jackie Pope have created a culture, as the Lead Pastors of Covenant Church in Douglas, Ga, that goes far beyond their local church and community, that champions a culture of love, where people can laugh, love, grow and belong. They are highly regarded for their love, kindness, compassion, and boldness.
Their vision is to see all people find Jesus, learn who they are in Christ, and rise up to be world shakers and culture changers with God’s love. They are respected for their passion for Christ and the local church and for preaching messages that change lives. They are the “dad and mom” of the house. They believe that the best is yet to come and we are better together.
Gregory and Jackie Pope have been in full time ministry since 1982, but ministry (Loving God and Loving People) has always been the heartbeat of their life. Ministry is not just what they do, it’s who they are. Prior to being called into full time pastoring, Gregory served as the Executive Director of a global musical evangelistic ministry, and they continue to serve on a number of faith-based ministry directors boards.
As authors, the Popes have written a book, Love Works, that captures the vision of their life and ministry. This book has been referred to as “a manual for living a life of love“ and is available on the Pope’s website as well as multiple online outlets.
These two understand that family is God's idea and have built their life and ministry on the belief that love begins at home. One of their greatest joys is sharing their life and the love of the Father with their own family, from children, grandchildren and even great grands.
“I have known Gregory and Jackie Pope since September of 1989. Without question, next to my wife, the Pope’s are my closest friends. When Gregory shared with me that he and Jackie were writing this book, I smiled because I knew that once finished and made available to the public, anyone who invested the time to read this manual for living a life of faith would immediately have the opportunity that I‘ve had for all of these decades - the opportunity to see through the lives of Gregory and Jackie Pope that with Jesus at the center of your life, your marriage, your parenting, your friendships, your ministry and your business - you, too, will soon see for yourself that yes, LOVE WORKS.”
- DEAN SIKES, Speaker & Founder of the You Matter Campaign
