Loving Outwardly

Growing disciples extends beyond the walls of our church. We exist and have been saved to glorify God and take His Gospel message to the world. Whether through a short-term trip overseas, a service project in Detroit, or a community outreach event here at our church, we seek to make the love of God undeniably known to all those we come in contact with.

*Short-Term Trips and Outreach Events are subject to change

Short-Term Trips

Every year we offer a wide variety of short-term missions trips both overseas and right here in the Detroit area. However, we have suspended all overseas trips for 2016 so we can focus solely on building the Kingdom in Detroit. Please check back for future opportunities to go out and serve. 

OVERALL VISION: While we as a church undergo the renovation of our worship center, we also want to invest in the broader community outside of our walls. The Elders are committing to come alongside of Central Detroit Christian (CDC) to help renovate their new ministry center. Our heart would be for every HPBC member to get involved in some way during the next year.
