Motown Mission is an urban work mission destination in Detroit, MI for Christian youth, college, and adult groups interested in economic disaster recovery work in the name of Jesus Christ. Deeply rooted in Wesleyan Theology, Motown Mission began as a United Methodist organization and continues to maintain the connection to the contemporary UMC's commitment to grace, mission, and service as a means for individual and communal transformation.
Every Summer since 2005, Motown Mission has partnered with local nonprofits to host student service trips that beautify our streets, build relationships, and transform communities.
The Foundry House is Motown Mission’s first step toward hosting Service trips all year long. Now renovated, this house is a home for service trips and church retreats that pick up where our summer trips leave off; providing ongoing care for our neighborhoods. It is also the intentional Christian community living space for young adults serving in mission, such as the United Methodist Global Mission Fellows-US2s serving in the Detroit area.
Thanks to hundreds of volunteers and thousands of service hours, Foundry House is finally a comfortable place for young adults and year-round teams to call home. The only problem is Foundry is in desperate need of a new roof! We need to raise at least $10,000 to replace the roof and keep our young adults warm and dry this winter, and to make this space a safe and hospitable destination for folks to serve alongside our Detroit neighbors. An additional $5000 raise will help with general operating expenses for Motown Mission. Join the movement, today!
