On April 24, 1991, the Presbytery of the South recognized its mission work in LaGrange, Georgia, as a particular congregation in the presbytery. Birthed in the PCA, in a city an hour southwest of Atlanta, the small work re-affiliated with the OPC in 1989 (with the blessing of the PCA), under the oversight of Redeemer OPC in Doraville and with the assistance of the regional home missionary of the Presbytery, Jim Heemstra. A year later it called its first pastor, Timothy Powers, a graduate of Covenant Seminary, who pastored the church until 1993, when he entered the military chaplaincy. The next year Covenant called its second pastor, Boyd Miller, a graduate of Davidson College and Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, who this past January completed his twentieth year of service at Covenant.
