A Heart for Missions

One of our desires as a church is to be relentless with our missionary giving, training, launching and supporting!

The Cooperative Program

As a church body we fully support our Southern Baptist Convention’s Cooperative Program. This program supports missions and ministries here in the state of Michigan and across the globe.


But whether you are here in Monroe or out in the bush somewhere in a distant country God calls us all to be on Mission for him. We also supports a number of missionaries outside of the SBC, and you have the ability to help! If you would like to donate funds to help any of our missionaries, please contact our church office or visit one of our missionaries’ websites below to read more about ways you can support them.
