“As partners in God’s mission to the world, Calvary Church, Hillcrest, the Church of the Ascension, Claymont, and Grace Church, Wilmington, enter into this Covenant for a shared and collaborative ministry in Brandywine Hundred and beyond. We enter into this Covenant willingly and faithfully, and with prayer that God will bless us in this calling to organize the Church in our region to live into and spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.”

These are the opening lines of the Brandywine Collaborative Ministries Covenant. Page one, paragraph one. Our Mission together to create greater impact by combining our energies and resources to further the Christian outreach  that each church already engages in and to join each other in mission related activities, in adult and youth education activities, and to reach out to others in need in our community of Brandywine Hundred and beyond.
