Who We Are and What We Do

Our History

Our Mission

Covenant Keypers continuous effort to help reduce the divorce rate among Christians is supported by a deliberate and pre-active initiative to teach and train single women, teens, and pre-teens before marriage. We are especially focused on the older women teaching the younger women to be sober, love their husband, and love their children, etc.; and the older men teaching the younger men to be sober, etc. As future families are formed, we believe strong foundations are essential to life-long marriages. Covenant Keypers wants to lead the way in building God-healthy men and women because God-healthy men and women make God-healthy marriages.
