We truly care for our communities and we believe we can show that by being the hands and feet of Jesus. Below are some of the ways that we serve our local communities.
Home ownership helps create stability in neighborhoods, and when people are invested in a community, it tends to thrive. We partner with Community Encompass to rehab houses in Muskegon with the goal of creating stable communities. These houses are sold/rented to individuals at reduced rates with that in mind.

One child. One hour. One time a week. Kids Hope USA facilitates relationships between loving, caring adults who are matched with children that teachers have identified as being at-risk academically or socially. Our Spring Lake campus partners with Jeffers Elementary School. When kids feel loved and valued, they are better able to learn, grow and succeed. And what better way to make a difference than right here in our own community?
