“… for my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.” – Isaiah 56:7
The West Side of Grand Rapids is a place with a rich history, robust culture, raw grittiness, and beautiful people. It is the place where we work, live, play and worship, and there is a lot to celebrate in our neighborhood. At the same time there are many people here that have endured a lot of hardship and neglect. And it is in this space between beauty and brokenness that God has called the BSHOP to build a bridge between the streets and the church, bringing shalom to chaos.
