Our Leaders

Lead Pastors

Pastors Dennis and Kathleen Lindsay - Have served in Kingdom ministry for over 20 years in the Durham, Raleigh, Chapel-Hill region of North Carolina. Over the years, they have both conducted ministerial and leadership development training, hosted and been keynote speakers at various women's and men's conferences, Youth and Young Adult Programs. Dennis and Kathleen are called to apostolic ministry, with Dennis' embracing his role as a loving spiritual father to many young leaders, effectively equipping and training those with a heart for Kingdom ministry to help facilitate fulfillment of their divine gifts and callings. Kathleen is called by God to a prophetic grace as a minister of inner healing, a gifted teacher and discerning counselor to many hurting women and families in their time of need.  Dennis is ready to impart wisdom and knowledge that will impact someone's life for God's purposes.   Due to their both being adopted or given away as children, Dennis and Kathleen realized that the enemy desired to keep their orphan heart segregated from their sisters and brothers in Christ. After experiencing full restoration and deep inner healing, this dynamic team approaches ministry as primarily expressed through the oneness of marriage,  the unity in the Body of Christ, and with a Kingdom family perspective with  brothers and sisters across the globe.  As very seasoned ministers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, both Dennis and Kathleen carry the true pastoral heart. Their greatest passion is to love people and to see people get to know God in an intimate way and experience freedom only available through relationship with God through His son Jesus Christ. Dennis and Kathleen train Kingdom leaders to empower them to live a victorious life in the Holy Spirit. These leaders remain humble and teachable. As servants-leaders, they are fully submitted to their covenant leadership and global partners in ministry believing wholeheartedly that we all should continue to grow in grace of our Lord and Savior throughout our earthly lives. These networks of Kingdom family provide support for our global mission initiatives and offer training and equipping opportunities as well.

Affiliate Leaders & Regional Partners

Apostle Ryan LeStrange & TRIBE Network 

Answering the clarion call for apostolic leadership to build, pioneer, and father ministries, The Cov Church International's Senior Leadership has embraced an apostolic alignment relationship with Apostle Ryan LeStrange and the TRIBE Network.  Apostle LeStrange and TRIBE Network of Kingdom leaders serves as a primary source of accountability for The Cov's leadership.  The Cov Church's alignment with TRIBE exists primarily in order to edify, equip, build and release the the 5-fold ministry gifts to effectively advance the Kingdom of God.   Ephesians 2:19-20 “Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone." 

Catch The Fire Partners 

The Cov Church International also is in covenant partnership with the Kingdom ministry leadership network of Catch The Fire Partners (Formerly Partners in Harvest and Catch The Fire).   Catch The Fire Partners was birthed out of an incredible revival that began in Toronto, Canada in 1994 under the ministry of John and Carol Arnott. The Catch The Fire Partners Leadership and partners are a part of a growing network of churches, a college with International Schools of Ministry, missions programs and events all over the globe.
