Our History


Our Beginnings

In October 1997, a group of believers met in a local home to discuss and pray about the possibility of starting a new Southern Baptist Church. Their desire was for this new work to be biblically based and traditional in worship. Sensing the leadership of the Holy Spirit, the small group voted to form Covenant Baptist Church.


The next step in the process was to call a pastor. The call was extended to Rev. Davy Henderson. The vote was unanimous, and Bro. Davy accepted. For eight years, Bro. Davy faithfully led the congregation. Through his leadership, God grew His church. Bro. Davy served the Lord until his home going in June 2005.


Covenant’s first place of worship was the Forest Hill Malco Cinema. Two months later, the church began leasing a portion of the Madonna Learning Center in Germantown. This facility served the church well until a permanent building could be constructed.


Our Next Steps

In 1999, Covenant merged with Parkway Village Baptist Church. Both churches shared common goals and beliefs. After much prayer and work, these two local bodies of believers became one. Since the merger, the Lord has added hundreds of people to our family of faith.


In October 2000, the Lord provided approximately thirty seven acres of land on Houston Levee Road in Collierville. This piece of property was purchased by the church, and construction began. On July 13, 2002, the first service was held in the new facility.


In August 2006, the church called Dr. Sam Brassell as pastor. Under his leadership, the church continues to grow and enjoy the blessings of the Lord.  In 2010, an Education building and office suite was added.

Our Future

Though our history is not very long, it has been exciting. It is obvious that God has been at work since the beginning days of Covenant. We thank God for the past. We are excited about the future. We believe that there are some great days ahead. We cannot wait to see what God is going to do as we continue to faithfully serve Him.
