Job Description:

Who We Are:

Davison Missionary Church is focused on showing our community who Jesus is. We do this by loving and worshipping God, loving others, and making disciples. By following the Great Commission and Great Commandments, we (are) intentionally:

  • Focus on Jesus – and the life transformation that comes only through Him.
  • Biblically Grounded – which means the content and meaning in our ministries all come from the truth found in the Bible.
  • Culturally Engaged – so the methods we use for our programs are intentionally chosen to reach people in our community and are not tied to tradition.
  • A Church Family – so everyone has a place to grow in faith as well as a responsibility to help others grow.
  • Committed to Discipling the Next Generation – No matter our age, we are privileged to invest in the generations following us.
  • Serve One Another and Our Community – We want everyone to belong to God’s family and have a passion for showing Christ’s love to others.
  • Known by What Brings Us Together – Jesus and the power of His love, grace, and mercy to all people.
  • Outwardly Focused – We want to reach people where they live, work, and play – in our community and around the world.
