History of EACH

Mission Statement: Working together as a body of believers, we will give everyone in the Metropolitan Detroit area a chance to take the next step in their journey toward Jesus.

In 2011, evangelical churches from around metro-Detroit came together to give over 3.5 million people a chance to hear the message of Christ and to take the next step in their spiritual journey.

This was the widest and most effective evangelistic campaign in the history of Michigan. The goal was to not simply to give every person multiple chances to connect with the message of Christ, but also . . .

  1. To see tens of thousands come to faith in Christ . . .

  2. To see churches and church leaders working together as one body . . .

  3. To see substantial growth in our existing churches . . .

  4. To see momentum in the planting of many new churches in our region . . .

  5. To permanently alter the spiritual landscape of Southeastern Michigan . . .

  6. To make a statement to a watching world: Detroit is rebuilding, and Jesus is the foundation of our comeback!
