Phil & Jami Covone
Phil and Jami Covone began their missionary journey by planting a Hispanic church in Georgia, and pastoring there for almost ten years. In 2015, God called them to live in central Mexico as full-time missionaries, working to see disciple-making movements begin all over the region. Phil grew up in Mexico as the son of Presbyterian missionaries, and now God is using his knowledge of the language and culture to build relationships and share Christ with the Mexican people.
The mission of Covone Ministries is to make and multiply disciples and simple churches, while training the Mexican people to reach their own people for Christ. Rather than planting traditional churches in buildings, the Covones go out to communities sharing the gospel, and begin Discovery Bible Study groups in homes and other locations. They use access ministries such as giving food bags, water filters, reading glasses, hygiene bags, and more, to open doors for the gospel. The Covones also train Mexican pastors and disciples to use their simple Bible study group strategy to reach their communities with the gospel.
Project H.O.M.E. – Helping Others Mobilize and Evangelize
In 2018, God led Covone Ministries to begin Project: H.O.M.E.
Local pastors, and other Christians, in central Mexico are eager to learn how to exponentially make and multiply disciples and simple churches. Covone Ministries trains them to create disciple-making and simple church-planting movements that can sweep across all of Mexico’s 32 states.
A “Mission Headquarters and Training Center” in central Mexico
PHASE 1: 2018 – July 2019
*Funds were raised to begin Project: H.O.M.E. for the funding of a rented house/facility in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. Phil and Jami moved into the house in July 2019.
PHASE 2: July 2019 – present
*Fundraising for Project: H.O.M.E. continues. Covone Ministries is currently searching for an appropriate property in which to build a permanent Mission Headquarters and Training Center in San Luis Potosi, Mexico.
*The Covones continue to rent a house/training facility, for living and holding ministry activities until a permanent “Mission Headquarters and Training Center” can be built. It serves as a location for carrying out mission projects, and after COVID-19, will host Mexican pastors and disciples for training, as well as host U.S. short-term mission teams. The house is located in a gated community with high-level security in San Luis Potosi, Mexico.
FUTURE – PHASE 3:
When the Mission Headquarters and Training Center is complete, the Covones are moved in, and the mission is being carried out there.

“Our goal is the rapid multiplication of disciples and churches for the rapid growth of God’s kingdom in Mexico, and around the world. Please pray for us. Thank you.”
