New Congregations

In the Great Lakes District of the EFCA we are about church multiplication through planting new churches, new congregations of multi-site churches, and 2nd language congregations.  We are excited about these new works as Christ builds His church for the glory of God.

  • Summit Church

    Lead Pastor: Ovi Petrascu

    Location: Garden City, MI

    Summit Church exists to live for more. Just as the summit is the highest point of a hill or mountain so we believe the apex of living is found in treasuring Christ above all else. We want to do life out of that, and disciple others to do the same by rescuing, rebuilding and empowering the community of Garden City for the glory of God.
