These grassroots expressions weren’t started by Mars Hill, and they aren’t run by Mars Hill either. So why are they here? Because in Grand Rapids and in other cities and countries, people connected to Mars Hill have come up with ways to reflect our mission through their own work and service. They’re helping to bring about measurable change in the world, and that’s something we’re pretty excited about. If you’re looking to give to or get involved with some great efforts, we hope you’ll consider these.
