Eleos Detroit

It is with great excitement that I'd like to tell you that we believe God is leading us to open an Eleos Coffee House in Detroit Michigan. Long story short, God laid the city on our hearts in a very pronounced way a month ago causing us to prayerfully go and visit the city. After driving around Detroit, God confirmed His calling by answering very specific prayers and giving the entire Eleos Board a unity of passion for this calling. He also had prepared a number of people for us to interact with in Detroit who were able to give us a good sense of the layout of the city and demonstrate the enormous need for the gospel in a devastated city.

God has already called several Eleos staff members to go in faith from Kansas City and join a couple in Detroit that we believe God has prepared in advance to join our team. We believe that this ministry will be accomplished in 3 phases, the first of which is to secure a multifamily house in our target area where the Eleos team will live. We hope to see them move to Detroit by April of 2015 as God supplies for the need.

Detroit is in such hardship and so much of the city is broken down, burned, abandoned and experiencing great poverty and violence. Many homeless, lost, broken and hurting people still remain and need the good news of the gospel.

Will you fervently pray with us now for on-going wisdom from the Lord, clarity of His will, strength to move forward and the necessary resources to accomplish the vision God has planted within us? We are so excited to think that we could be engaging the people of Detroit through gospel-driven ministries of compassion while we continue to serve in Northeast KCMO!
