Evangelism & Personal Ministries

Evangelism—The Michigan Conference is committed, by God's grace, to fulfilling its commission of sharing the gospel with others throughout the state. To aid in this goal evangelistic teams lead out with holding series of meetings and seminars in different locations in Michigan. They are aided by the local congregation/congregations through the whole evangelism process, which includes pre-work and follow-up.

Personal Ministries is about people caring about the needs of others. This department helps provide training and support services for pastors and members of the local church in their Christ-ordained work of helping their neighbors, friends, coworkers, and family members know of Jesus’ love. Its goal is to see every member of our churches involved in and excited about sharing the good news of Jesus and His soon coming. It attempts to accomplish this goal through the following training seminars, events, and programs:
