Journey of Hope Launches in New Venue

We are celebrating the re-launch of our Journey of Hope Church in Taylor, MI this past Sunday. Pastors Paul and Josh along with a dedicated core of missional leaders and volunteers did an outstanding job in preparing for this big day. Late last summer, the church was able to sell their former building which subsequently allowed the Southern Michigan Conference to pay off all remaining debt, but to also purchase a “portable church system." All of the physical ingredients needed to have a service is in their portable church trailer. This pioneering approach enables the church to be free from the expense and attention of caring for an aging property but it also enables them to be more missionally focused and organizationally nimble. Moving forward, the church is focused on planting new congregations in the downriver communities as they hit the road with this portable church model.
