God is renewing all things!

The crazy thing is that he's doing it in and through his people, the church. A people who he calls his own; a people called out  "from every tribe and language and people and nation (Rev. 5:9b)."  In short, the gospel of Jesus Christ is for all people, in all places, across all time; and we desperately desire to be caught up in God's beautiful vision to redeem, restore, and renew all things to himself in Christ. 

To that end, we partner with ministries, agencies, and networks here in Traverse City, Michigan, and to the ends of the earth.  Here's a brief introduction to some of our partners:
