a FLOURISHING West Michigan
We Are Better
Scattered throughout Holland & Zeeland are churches and nonprofits doing incredible work. Due to various obstacles, it's difficult for these organizations to coordinate their efforts.
That's where we come in, we are in a sense the nervous system of the body of Christ. We exist to AMPLIFY & UNIFY the efforts of these great churches and nonprofits so all in West Michigan can FLOURISH.

Community Reformed Church
I am very thankful for the renewed vision and approach of MWM. In each of the three meetings I’ve had with Kory, I’ve learned about needs in our community, new approaches to meeting those needs, and am excited to see how MWM will continue to facilitate churches coming together with other organizations to "act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God (Micah 6:8)."

In our work to welcome, support, and empower so many of our most marginalized neighbors, Movement West Michigan has been a critically important ally. Church partners are fundamental to our ability to grow our community-powered, volunteer-driven work, and our partnership with MWM continues to help us expand our welcoming, essential, impactful services.
Movement West Michigan has been instrumental over the last years In helping our church join God in mission with partners around our community for a more holistic impact to the people God has called us to serve. The heart and passion to see our community flourish through the diverse body of Christ, working together, has been an inspiration to us.
