Meet Katherine Kerr

Senior Associate Minister for Congregational Life and Pastoral Care

"My greatest joy in ministry is making connections with people in order to share God’s love and spread God’s word. Whether in worship, in conversation, or through serving together, it is our human connections that most profoundly show us how God is at work in our world."

Katherine came to Covenant from First Presbyterian Church of Charlotte, where she served as associate pastor for 11 years. Katherine is known to many at Covenant, having served as acting director of Mission and Outreach and director of Young Adults ministries in 2001-02.
