What Is Covenant Connections International (CCI)?

Covenant Connections International is an organization founded by Bishop Nate Holcomb in an effort to provide a spiritual covering producing active and ongoing communication and unity among its apostles, prophets, pastors, evangelists, and teachers. In doing so harmony will ensure that CCI and its membership speak as one bringing glory to God through Christ Jesus..

CCI was birthed as a result of Bishop Holcomb’s move into the office of Bishop in 1987. His mandate as given by the Holy Spirit is to provide a personal, spiritual connection, vis-à-vis, Father to son/son to father, to CCI members. This connection will result in pastor being able to better serve their congregations or minister in a more excellent manner and to walk in integrity and truth.


CCI purposes to bring each member into a deeper relationship and understanding of the work of the Holy Spirit through living the Spirit-filled life and preaching the full gospel message. Although CCI believes that its membership should be in full agreement with each article of its statement of faith, thus promoting harmony among its membership, it recognizes that initially upon joining, there might be differences in doctrine and understanding of Scriptural references to the Holy Spirit, spiritual gifts, and operations of the Spirit. These differences will serve as a means to bring knowledge and understanding of the present-day work of the Holy Spirit so that there can be personal growth and increase in the apostle, prophet, pastor, evangelist, and teacher.
