The Compass Church began to take shape as a church-plant in June 2017. A group of longtime friends and family discerned both the leading of the Lord and the great need for a new church in the Greater Lansing area. These Christ-followers felt compelled to plant a church that would wed Biblical exposition (teaching and preaching) and compassionate community evangelism (sharing Jesus across the street and around the world).
Shortly after this vision began to form, Small-group Bible studies, worship times, and prayerful meetings were held and a decision was made to plant a church on June 17 and call Pastor Bryan as Lead pastor. In the months that followed a Launch Team was formed, a number of outreaches to the community were launched, Pastor Dave joined the staff, and a vision began to take shape. This culminated in the decision to officially incorporate as a church, draft By laws and a Constitution, and apply for Federal and State statuses.
As you are reading this, the Compass Church is prayerfully seeking a temporary home while planning for the future. We would appreciate your prayers. If you do not have a place where you regularly worship or you do not know what Christianity is all about, please visit with us on a Saturday night @ 6 PM to see what following Jesus is all about. Or visit our facebook page to request more information.
Additionally, if you are a believer and wish to join in on the ground floor of an exciting Kingdom adventure, we would invite you to join us some Saturday night to hear the Bible preached and to sing praises to our Lord Jesus Christ.
We know that not everyone will be called to this startup effort, but we are trusting that the Lord will call some to join us in reaching the Greater Lansing community for Christ.
May God bring honor and glory to His name,
Bryan L. Kent
