Meet Our 2019 Detroit Cohort!
“Our Detroit Cohort is comprised of a diverse group of servants throughout the city. These pastoral leaders range from bi-vocational leaders that teach in the public schools by day and preach the gospel by night to those approaching retiring from historic denominations. This is the first Macedonian Ministry cohort in Michigan and we are excited to grow from the spiritual and practical tools Macedonian Ministry provides. While diverse in our backgrounds, upbringing, and ministry contexts there is a common theme of transition that connects our group. Some are transitioning from their church being moved due to a new bridge being erected and others are transitioning from being on a team when planting the church to now being solo once the church has become established. God is using Macedonian Ministry as a place for equipping, encouragement, and joy filled fellowship.
I trust that our time as a cohort will overflow to our congregations and the communities we serve. I have but one regret…that I did not find out about this ministry sooner.”
