Welcome to messiah church

3816 Toledo Detroit MI

services: sundays 10:30 am


 Messiah Church is more than a building. We are a congregation of unique people… inner city, suburban…racially, culturally, politically, and economically diverse. We are People of the Way…

We pray that Messiah is a place where people continue to gather together for worship, instruction, fellowship, sacrament, and service to the very end. A place where we help one another, as we are helped by God’s Word, his Spirit, and his love. A place that offers a safe haven, a sanctuary for those who are wounded, troubled, and in despair…where the mercy of God is found.  Our size and growth is not the most important thing....what matters is that God is good, he is faithful, he is with us, we are his and that we continue to do his will here at Messiah.

welcoming PASTOR Jeff Hunt

We are pleased to welcome Jeff, Sara, and their five children... who are a familiar sight at both Messiah Church and in the neighborhood. Not only were Jeff and Sara married at Messiah, they've lived in Southwest Detroit since 2001 and have attended Messiah for 10 years or so. Jeff has served on the Council, as a liturgist, and as a substitute preacher during this time. 

Jeff has a Master's of Divinity degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.  He has worked for 14 years for Covenant Community Care as a street chaplain and as manager of their homeless outreach program.  

May God work through Jeff to draw the congregants, our neighbors, and any who walk through Messiah's doors ever closer to our wonderful Lord as we seek his heart, follow in his footsteps, and live for his Kingdom together.
