“CSM never goes where we are not invited by indigenous leaders,” says Dan Reeve, President of CSM. “Honestly, so many ministries asked us to come serve with them that it felt like the Apostle’s call in Acts 16:9: ‘come over to Macedonia and help us!’”
Emily Hoffmann, a native to the city, will be CSM Detroit’s founding City Director. Hoffmann helped to facilitate three separate CSM service trips this past summer and will continue to do so long-term.
“CSM has proved to be a great fit for Detroit,” says Hoffmann. “Connections with ministry partners have been God-orchestrated and mutually beneficial to both our groups and their organizations. I'm excited about establishing relationships with even more ministries in the city and seeing future CSM groups make an even greater kingdom impact!”
CSM will begin accepting registrations immediately for Detroit trips booked in October 2014 and beyond. Groups as small as seven total people can serve as short as 24 hours.
“Detroit and its many ministries really do need you to serve alongside them in bringing Shalom to this needy city,” says Reeve.
