Mosaic Church of Detroit

God has been calling The Wesleyan Church back to the city of Detroit. After years of absence from the city, we returned to Detroit and invested in The Wesley Center on 7 Mile Road. Pastor Mark Judkins and his team have been working hard for the last five years to establish a vital ministry to their neighborhood.

We believe it is time to move into another Detroit neighborhood in the MidTown heart of Detroit and serve as an active part of the spiritual life of those who call Detroit home.

Pastor Mick Veach has resigned from Stoney Creek Community Church and now is tasked with leading a team to fulfill the vision for planting a church in Midtown Detroit. Coming along him in starting a work in Detroit are several like-minded teammates, who have sold their homes in the surrounding suburbs and have moved their families to new homes in the city.

This new work is The Mosaic Church of Detroit. Part of the definition for the word "mosaic" is composed of a combination of diverse elements. That is already an accurate description of the Mosaic Church of Detroit as well as their new neighborhood. The leadership team represents a variety of cultures, between the team members they speak seven different languages.

The Mosaic Church of Detroit is temporarily meeting at The Wesley Center until their "new"home is ready for them. Their new buidling is at 80 W Alexandrine St - just a few blocks west of the new Woodward Ave Rail line that will be servicing the MidTown area.

Now in 21015 as the home of Mosaic, this building has a place in Detroit's great future.

There is much to be done to this historic church to bring it up to code and renovate it for it's new congregation. Much of the early work will need to be done by contracts, removing asbestos, changing out windows, replacing the roof, and other big projects. If you are interested in learning more about Mosaic or would like to be involved in the renovations, check out their website for details.
