The roots of New Covenant Presbyterian Church started to bud in the summer of 1993 when several Christians decided to meet together and pray. This meeting morphed into a weekly Bible Study and by October of the same year, Dr. Ligon Duncan, former Senior Pastor at First Presbyterian Church of Jackson (PCA), started leading a weekly Bible Study on a series covering the book of Hebrews. In May of 1994, the Bible Study group had grown into a new Mission Church under Grace Presbytery of the PCA. The following month, New Covenant had designated 21 Charter Members and sought out a new place to host weekly worship. By August, a Pastor Search Committee had formed and in February of 1996, a call was issued to New Covenant’s first pastor, Rev. Dennis Flach, under the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC).
11 years later, the Lord had provided New Covenant with a brand new church sanctuary and multi-purpose building currently located at 130 Homochitto Street. These new buildings and their completion were celebrated with a Thanksgiving and Dedication service on Sunday, October 28, 2007. Since that time, the congregation of New Covenant has faithfully worshiped their Lord and Creator every Sunday.
The Rev. Dennis Flach served faithfully to the people of New Covenant for 18 years, retiring in December of 2014. After his retirement, New Covenant contacted Reformed Theological Seminary of Jackson and inquired of weekly Student Supply preachers to fill the pulpit every Sunday. There were also many guest preachers who came by the traditional “word of mouth” fashion to aid in New Covenant’s time of transition and adjustment. This is how the people of New Covenant met their new and current pastor, Seth Duhs.
Seth and his wife, Roberta first attended New Covenant in March of 2015. By November of 2015, Seth was hired to be the new pastor of New Covenant, his official starting Sunday on January 31, 2016. Seth is also a USAF Guard Chaplain and is dedicated to serving the people of New Covenant in all aspects of life. He and Roberta moved to Natchez from Madison, MS. Seth graduated from Delta State University and Reformed Theological Seminary. Roberta graduated from Belhaven University.
New Covenant Presbyterian Church was officially dismissed from the EPC in April 2016 and officially welcomed into Grace Presbytery of the PCA in May 2016.
