Meet Our Chapel Staff
Grant comes to Covenant from Pasadena, California, where he most recently served as the coordinator of campus ministries at Providence Christian College. His call to campus ministry follows thirteen years of pastoral ministry—ten of those serving as senior pastor of Second Congregational Church in Peabody, Massachusetts, and three as a pastor of Grace Pasadena, a PCA church plant in Pasadena, California.
Since coming to faith through reading the gospels in college, Grant has remained passionate about God’s word and its ability to transform hearts and minds. He is devoted to faithful, expository preaching and has a deep appreciation and love for the Lord’s church. Ordained as a teaching elder in the PCA, Grant most recently served on the credentials committee in the Pacific Presbytery.
Grant graduated from the University of Kansas with a B.A. in English literature and received his M.Div. from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He and his wife, Sandi, who is also a University of Kansas graduate and holds an M.A. in church history from Gordon-Conwell, have been married twenty years and have two daughters, Henri and Flannery. Having lived all over the country, this is the Lowes’ first time to dwell in the land of sweet tea and banana pudding.
Special Programs and Mentoring Coordinator (2007)
Christiana Fitzpatrick came to Covenant in 2007 from Tenth Presbyterian Church, where she served as the missions coordinator. She holds a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Pennsylvania as well as a master of arts in education from Wake Forest University. She worked with college students and alumni for seven years at the University of Pennsylvania Career Services office. Christiana is involved in student discipleship, including overseeing the work of our student discipleship coordinators. She also works with students interested in study abroad and other off-campus study options. She is an active member at Resurrected Baptist Church in Chattanooga.
Chapel Administrative Assistant (2011)
Moving from the elementary school classroom to Covenant’s campus, Leslie Petree joins our staff as the administrative assistant to the chapel office. Born and raised in North Carolina, Leslie holds a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She taught fourth grade for five years at Trinity School of Durham & Chapel Hill before marrying and moving to Texas, and most recently taught third grade at Brainerd Baptist School. Leslie is eagerly anticipating being a part of Covenant’s vibrant student life as she serves in the chapel office. She and her husband, Jason, worship at North Shore Fellowship.
