God is restoring all things. The crazy thing is 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 and restore all things to himself in Christ. 

To that end, we partner with missionaries, 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:

 

Sojourn Network exists to help pastors plant, grow, and multiply healthy churches that last.

We realize that only the Spirit can stir people’s hearts and bring them into community with other believers in Jesus.

Yet, it is our joy to partner with like-minded churches around the nation to see the whole gospel impact the whole world.

Kids Hope

One child, One hour, One church, One school.


Kids Hope offers churches and schools a proven, award-winning model to meet the emotional, social and academic needs of children.

KHUSA programs create one-on-one mentoring relationships between adult church members, willing to give a little time and a lot of love, and at-risk elementary schoolchildren in their community who desperately need loving, caring adults in their lives.

Utilizing the existing structures of churches and elementary schools as the framework for these programs, KIDS HOPE USA creates successful, sustainable and life-changing church-school partnerships.

Christ’s Hope International cares for orphaned and vulnerable children through Ministry CarePoints.

Ministry CarePoints are strategically located centers that provide children with holistic care, biblical teaching, and the ability to live with extended or foster families rather than being institutionalized or living on the streets.

We specifically partner with the Manzanza Ministry CarePoint in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo. As well as the Sue Wright Ministry CarePoint in Jamanique.

TC Cares is a free one-day health clinic offered to residents of the greater Traverse City area. The clinic runs on a zero-dollar budget, which means that all services and goods are donated by and to the community.

TC Cares is built on the free clinic model of Touched Twice United, an organization that empowers churches to meet the healthcare and spiritual crises.

Due to the nature of the event we cannot confirm ahead of time what is offered, but in years past the following services were made available: medical, optical, chiropractic, physical therapy screenings and care, haircuts, family photos, a warm meal, manicures, spiritual counseling and winter outerwear.

Our next clinic is on Saturday, October 13, 2018 from 10am - 2pm at Sojourn Church.

CHARLIE & RACHEL

Charlie and Rachel, serve as a part of PALM (Preparing Arab-world Leaders for Ministry) a ministry of Pioneers.  

PALM seeks to gather individual Muslim-background followers of Christ into discipleship groups, where they can grow together into spiritual maturity as part of reproducing churches. God is drawing Muslims to himself today!

But only by ensuring the formation of strong, biblical, courageous, disciple-making churches, will we see the Arab world enduringly transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ. Charlie and Rachel serve the Arab world from a base in Europe.
