One of the best ways to partner with Courage Church is by bringing a Short Term Missions team to Detroit and getting hands on experience serving people in the city.
When you partner with Courage Church, you will be given the opportunity to tangibly meet people right where they are, and show them the love of Christ.
We are also committed to helping disciple, train, and teach the students and teams who come and spend time with us in Detroit, and will offer a variety of opportunities to pour back into your team while you are here.
What is the Reconciliation Table?
The Reconciliation Table is a 65 foot table in the center of a Detroit neighbor that is all about Reconciling people back to God through a dignified presentation of who He is.
We take Jesus literally when he says in Luke 14 “when you give a banquet, invite the people who can never pay you back”
We set the table for our neighbors. Always.
We host mission teams all summer in Detroit!
On any given week throughout the summer, teams will help with:
-Assisting at Courage Kids Club (Thursday evenings)
-Throwing banquets at the Reconciliation Table as Jesus describes in Luke 14.
-Gardening in the Reconciliation Table Garden.
