Covenant Helpers Arbor - Linked to the Past..Positioned for a New Future of Volunteer Engagement

Stephen Werner started Covenant Financial Planning (CFP) 17 years ago with a vision to not only serve Clients with biblically based, financial advice, but offer Clients ways to serve together, bettering the lives of the less fortunate in our community.

As CFP grew, so did the ways to team up and support local not for profits. And Covenant Helpers was born.

Initially, this took place during the Holiday season with "drives" for coats, mittens, blankets, toiletries, and canned food.

Thanks to the generosity of CFP's Clients, new partnerships were created and extra support generated for those not for profits.

Flash forward first to 2017, then on to 2019.

2017, marked the launch of Covenant Financial Group in partnership with Steven Carpenter. Only the name changed not the commitment to be a viable force for ideas and actions to support not for profits.

In 2019, Covenant Helpers became Covenant Helpers Arbor thanks to a new partnership with Gleaner Life of Adrian, MI (when you think "Arbor," think service club).

Arbors plan and carry out activities to directly help not for profits, including cash contributions, and a growing list of volunteers who wanted to roll up their sleeves to support the Organization's mission (see photos, below).

Partnering with Gleaner Life--a fraternal organization--helps Arbors with payments through Members who participate in activities after certain criteria is met.

Arbors can do more work without fundraising.

How can you join? Two ways.

Become a Gleaner Member for $100, and when you receive a $1,000, fraternal accidental death insurance policy. Visit for a complete list of benefits (and there are many).

Official Membership does have another benefit: voting rights for project decisions/how dollars will be spent.

If becoming an "official" Member is not for can still participate as a social member.

Either way...Covenant Helpers Arbor wants you!  Join us in serving our community and those in need!
