Jesus gave His followers a mission to “Go, make disciples of all nations…” Because we believe every person was created for life with God, we seek to proclaim the glorious message about Jesus to the world. We have partnered with people, families and organizations in order that people from various countries can know the love of God. 

Every year we have a missions emphasis event. In 2017 it will be the weekend of November 3-5. We have three missionary families visiting us:

Jerel & Rebekah Bland are church planters in inner city Detroit. They started The Hope Center a couple years ago with many ministries into the community and doing a great job.
Elias & Robin Correa have been missionaries to Ireland for several years. However, due to visa difficulties, they are now doing Bible distribution in several foreign countries.
Justin & Shayna Burdine serve to provide college-age students missions trip opportunities into Mexico. They minister to impoverished people through a local church in Mexico throughout the year. 

The greatest thing we can do for missionaries is to pray for them. Yet, we cannot pray adequately without knowing our missionaries. This year’s missions conference will will help our congregation get to know our visiting missionaries. Our congregation will be given many opportunities to interact with missionaries in small and large meetings.

See the schedule below for opportunities to get to know missionaries.
