Who is Reliant?

We were born in 1989 as a mission support agency for a small group of campus church planters. A lot's changed since then! (Less stonewashed jeans, for one).

Today we mobilize church planters and missionaries across like-minded missional groups and church-planting networks. As we've expanded our partnerships, we've adopted a new name. Yet our devotion to Jesus' command to "Go and make disciples..." remains. It's who we are.

I love Reliant because:I belong to a church (New Life) that is staffed by Reliant employees and I have been blessed over the last 16 years to serve with many of the staff members and see the impact they have made and are still making for Christ in Ann Arbor and around the world.

I serve Reliant because:I believe God has given me the gift of planning strategically for the sake of His kingdom. I am excited to be part of a team that is planning, praying and relying on God to figure out how we can support as many missionaries as possible so that His good news is taken to every corner of the world.

A favorite scripture of mine is:Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him and He will make your paths straight. -Proverbs 3:5,6

My local church home is:New Life Church, Ann Arbor
