The Rev. David Greenwood (Ph.D., University of Edinburgh) ~
is delighted to come to Basking Ridge and find himself among wonderful confessing Christians who want to study God’s word. His ministry at Covenant Chapel is foundationally about the exposition of Holy Scripture for God’s people. He understands that as Rector, it is his responsibility to not only bring people to know the Triune God of Christianity, but also to connect present-day Christians with the faith and practice of the early Church.
