WHY PLANT A NEW CHURCH IN FLINT?

A few people have asked me why I have specifically chosen Flint, Michigan as the location to plant a new expression of church. Here are some cliff’s-notes-style thoughts to begin answering that question:

I live in Flint. It’s where I’ve put my roots down.

God is at work, right here in this place.

In a city, that is being identified by headlines that read “Most Dangerous City in America”, I see potential.

In this city, I see people yearning for something more and getting their hands dirty working towards resurrection and new life.

The people and places of this city have played a part in shaping me to become who I am today. It’s time for me to give of myself in a way that honors these contributions.
