conversations v. covenants

With the publicity and publications around the subject of emerging church and similar subject matter there are so many more talking about church in a different light than there were just 5 years. But I wonder if it is time to move beyond conversations and be more deliberate about covenanted relationships. Conversations you can go in and out of. But at some point aren't some just longing to know who will be there for them through the thick and thin? With denominations and para-church organizations struggling with the resources to engage the growing group of "emerging" leaders or the lack of interest (for whatever reason), who will these people associate with? Are we at a point where covenanted relationships are more important than the conversation?
