I left renewed....

Pilgrimge rescued me from a spiral of depression brought on by my personal problems; I left renewed with the conviction that God still has great plans for me.

A tangible sense of community, of belonging

"One life-changing thing I brought home from my Pilgrimage was a tangible sense of community, of belonging. For just as I love because God first loved me, and forgive because He has forgiven me – 'community' was given to me and now I have experienced what that means, I am able to extend it to others."

There was always a question about "WHY?" Pilgrimage answered that question

"I have always believed in God, but there was always a question about "WHY?"  Pilgrimage answered that question and having gone through a Pilgrimage weekend, I have renewed my faith experience and a new awareness in God and his power.  If you are struggling with your faith or need to reconnect with God, Pilgrimage is the place.  If you feel a need to increase your faith, Pilgrimage is the place.  You will be so enriched by the experience, you will want to Pass It On to others and be one of God's Servants."

My experiences at MPP will stay with me the rest of my life

My experiences at MPP will stay with me the rest of my life. The Holy Spirit soared through my body and heart to make me His servant here on earth before I go home to be with Him in heaven. From the moment I arrived until I left, I was treated with love and an understanding that is indescribable. I would encourage everyone to attend an MMP to grow in your faith and to know that you are special in God's eyes. God is good!

You will experience God's love for you, personally

God's love is poured out in so many ways all throughout the weekend. You will experience God's love for you, personally, and learn how you fit in to God's larger purposes and plan as well as how you can participate in God's mission here on earth.

One of the best decisions I have ever made

I was a little hesitant, to say the least, about my first Pilgrimage experience. I finally agreed to go, and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. What I found through the Pilgrimage was a communal encounter with Christ. Just what I was yearning for. The weekend was intentional; every part planned with a purpose, which enriched the experience and added meaning to my life. I have attended several Pilgrimages since, and I encounter Christ through everyone each time. That's why I keep coming back!

Pilgrimage can be a journey – not just a three-day experience.

"The three-day Pilgrimage experience has impacted my walk with Christ and affirmed my sense of ecumenism. I have attended many different Christian churches in my lifetime, Pilgrimage has brought the best of all of them together – it is a model of attitude for what I see as ' one body in Christ.' The brothers and sisters in Christ that I have acquired through Pilgrimage are very special to me - many became friends only because our paths crossed on a MPP weekend. These friends represent more than 75 different churches, some in Michigan, some many states away. Together we continue to explore our commonalities being our love for the Lord and sharing that love with each other."

Pilgrimage can be a journey – not just a three-day experience.
