The city of Detroit is 139 square miles of grit, perseverance, and hustle. 139 miles of joy, brokenness, and possibilities. It’s a city with a rich, yet turbulent history and a challenging, but bright future.

For this complex and dynamic city, we believe that only the power of the gospel is able to provide lasting hope and transformation. We long to see the people of Detroit be transformed into Christ’s disciples who will then transform the world.

Our Story

In 1996, Harvest Mission Community Church started with a group of eight people in Ann Arbor and a dream: to be a 1st century church in the 21st century. As we looked into the book of Acts, God gave us the vision to be a community of faith that raises bold disciples of Christ who will transform the world. Since then, we’ve started churches in Austin, Jakarta, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

In 2012, the Detroit ministry started with five members from HMCC of Ann Arbor who had a vision to see Detroit transformed with the Gospel message. The ministry grew and multiplied to two LIFE Groups and has seen people from many backgrounds experience Biblical community, discipleship, and new life in Christ.

In 2017, HMCC of Ann Arbor announced that HMCC of Detroit would officially launch in 2018. In March, a team was chosen to help Pastor Sam Beck and the Detroit ministry leaders to build up the ministry and start the church.

We look forward to all that God will do through HMCC of Detroit in 2018 and beyond as we serve and reach out to the city of Detroit with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Prayer Support

Church planting is a spiritual endeavor and cannot be accomplished by human effort alone. As such, we depend on God in prayer to move and work in people, our ministry, and in the city. Please partner with us in praying for our ministry in the following ways:

  • Defense – For God to protect our ministry physically and spiritually.
  • Devotion – For our ministry to grow deeper in our love, affection, and worship of God.
  • Discovery – For our ministry to discern God’s heart for the people and city of Detroit.
  • Discipleship – For our ministry to make disciples of every people group in Detroit.

Financial Support

We often say that when God gives us a vision, He will always provide the provisions because He is always “for” (pro-) His vision. Time and time again, we see that the way that God provides for His vision is through His church. As we look to launch in 2018, we are raising funds for startup costs, our first year operating budget, and supporting Pastor Sam.
