Determination of the sample using purposive sampling technique. The results showed that there were five main themes, namely, first, CP as a form of obedience to the Vision of God; second, the Covid-19 pandemic era as an opportunity and opportunity for CP; third, in CP there is love and social care in a real and holistic manner; fourth, there is Covid-19 pandemic education as a form of national responsibility; fifth, the results of the CP, namely the establishment of a church coaching group and the CP had a positive impact on the commitment to serve and the increased participation of the congregation in CP services. A special theme is the need for the involvement of servants in the community of God's servants from an early age to strengthen each other in CP services.
