The Peoples Church maintains an Endowment Fund with a spending policy that protects the endowment principal in perpetuity. Investment earnings can be apportioned to the annual budget. Thanks to the generosity of endowment donors The Peoples Church has been able to support capital improvements to our historic building and continue to operate at a steady level despite the economic downturns experienced over the past decade. To the extent that additional principal donations are made, the church and our community increasingly benefits from this permanent income source.  For more information on the Endowment Fund, please see our Planned Giving brochure.

It is my honor and privilege to serve as Associate Pastor at The Peoples Church. I am excited about leading our Christian Education efforts - from littlest ones to the most senior. During my time as a pastor, I have found it rewarding to help others learn about and apply the Bible to their own lives. My hope and dream is that we can continue to nurture an environment where faith, spirituality and the Bible can be discussed with openness and honestly. READ MORE

I am immensely proud to be part of a welcoming worshiping community that values relationships with MSU and Lansing area communities, as well as relationships with organizations across the country and the globe. We have so much to offer each other!  I believe our congregation appeals to students and the wider community because we are a church that values honest discussion about our faith and our doubts as we strive to respond to the ways God is calling us to worship, live and work in the world. All are welcome on the journey.
