In 1959, a small group of young families who wanted an evangelical, family-friendly church in Montecito began meeting on the campus of Westmont College. Soon after organizing, the church moved down the hill to our current location on Cold Springs Road and affiliated with the Evangelical Covenant Church. Since its founding, Montecito Covenant Church has been intentional about vibrant and relevant worship, combining strong preaching from the Bible with a creative and varied blend of music. We chose to model multigenerational life together and not segment worship by age or style.
Who We Are
Montecito Covenant Church is a people of God, called and committed to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, living by faith under the authority of the Word of God through the power of the Holy Spirit. Our purpose is to love and glorify God by
- Worshiping Him in Spirit and Truth;
- Growing in Christ-like maturity;
- Caring for one another in love;
- Sharing the Good News of Christ’s love with the world in word and deed.
“We make disciples here” has become the banner over all that we do. We seek to engage people where they are in their journey, and invite and encourage them to take the next steps on their own pathway of discipleship. All of the ministries and programs are developed with the goal of making disciples here.
