Our Staff and Session members provide leadership and ministry expertise for our church to live out its mission.
Chuck Volk and his wife Lorraine joined Covenant in the spring of 2016. Chuck had retired from his General Surgery practice in Corpus Christi the summer before, and they decided to spend this next chapter with all three of their grown children, spouses and two grandchildren here in Austin. Their oldest son Will introduced them to Covenant, and they immediately felt at home with the church community. Chuck attends Men in the Word Bible study, has served on a Stewardship Taskforce, participates in the Institute for Missional Formation cohort, and is a member of the Discipleship Committee. He and Lorraine are Greeters on Sunday, and they are in a small group started during Lent 2016. Chuck enjoys jazz piano, and he has provided the accompaniment for the past two Children’s Christmas services. Chuck and Lorraine love to open their house for family, church, and friend gatherings; they love spending time with their kids and grandkids, taking walks together, and making new friends here in Austin. Chuck loves the outdoors- he plays golf, surfs, and enjoys yardwork. He is honored to be asked to serve Covenant as an Elder.
