Numerous ministries and influential community leaders have invited CSM to explore partnership with them in Detroit. “We have been amazed by the number of ministries that have asked us to come help them mobilize volunteers,”
Though Detroit is known for cars, Motown music and bankruptcy, the Church is very active there, especially among the poor and the immigrant community. Two ministries, Mack Avenue Community Church and YouthWorks-Detroit, have played a key role in dreaming up what collaboration could look like with CSM.
“I’m excited that we can be a major player in providing those ‘laborers’
CSM is currently recruiting groups to serve in Detroit with them this summer. Trips are currently being registered for July or August 2014.
To help facilitate these trips, CSM has employed Emily Hoffmann as their City Coordinator. Hoffmann, a Detroit resident, has thought of a partnership like this for years. “I am excited about the ways in which CSM will be able to facilitate this work; to open doors for ready and willing hands to serve in meaningful ways that will better the ministries and organizations that work hard every day in this city”, says Hoffmann. “I am also thrilled for those who will be able to participate in these trips and catch a glimpse of the powerful things God is up to in Detroit.”
