It is our heart’s desire to serve God’s people. Our mission, first and foremost is to introduce them to Christ, and then come alongside them in order to encourage, support and teach them as they grow in their relationship with Christ. We want to equip them as disciples to go and make disciples, continually growing the body of Christ!
Frank and Renita were both born and raised in Detroit, MI. They currently reside in St. Clair Shores, MI, a suburb of Detroit which is on the NE border of Detroit. They live in the Six Point Quadrant where Detroit and five other suburbs all come together. The economics of the cities range from lower class to very affluent. The infamous 8 Mile Road, which local famous rapper Eminem lived near, separates Detroit from the suburbs and serves as a separation of peoples and cultures, a rift so to speak. Frank and Renita believe GOD has called them to stitch up this divide, by being a part of GOD healing relations between the city and the suburbs for the cause of Christ. The Breath of Life Christian Church’s motto is: “Imperfect People Introducing Imperfect People to a Perfect Christ”.
