Covfamikoi 2019

The first ever record of a joint conference for the Ohio and Illinois presbyteries (now the Great Lakes Presbytery) was the youth conference that was held in Bethany Park, IN in 1946. It continued on as a youth conference until 1965, at which point the presbytery decided to place special emphasis on making it a family conference. The name Covfamikoi was adopted by way of vote at the end of the conference in 1949. It originally stood for the “Covenant families of Florida,Alabama, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, and Illinois” and the name has stuck ever since, even as other states have been added to the presbytery.
