A spiritual covering is a spiritual father who becomes a source through which we find nourishment, wisdom, protection, and counsel. A covering is a father who invests all of his available resources in a son or a church so they can reach their purpose or destiny.

A covering or a spiritual father is a cultivator, endorser, protector, mentor, progenitor, leader, encourager, stabilizer, provider, transmitter, trainer, a source that feeds, a teacher, one who disciplines, and one who makes his children accountable.

A father identifies the gifts in his children and trains them so their gifts can bear fruit. He gives identity, provides shelter and refuge, grants safety, and raises their self esteem. A father takes men and women without direction, purpose, or destiny and teaches, loves, and helps them to find direction in their life in God.
