Renewed my desire....
It renewed my desire to do Christian service.
A life changing experience
MPP is a life changing experience...through the power of God the MPP team lead me back to the hand of Jesus Christ who walks with me daily and guides my path.
The most significant worship experience of our lives
"My wife, Carolyn, and I attended the first Michigan Pilgrimage. It was, without question, the most significant worship experience of our lives. It reminded us of, and reinforced, our faith in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior in a very meaningful manner."
I left there with a stronger sense of who I am in Christ Jesus...
At Pilgrimage I experienced an outpouring of the love and grace of God in a profound way. I left there with a stronger sense of who I am in Christ Jesus.
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."

It started me...
It started me keeping a "gratitude journal" so that I am focused on all God's blessings in my life---rather than on problems.
It's 3 days that I would recommend to everyone who wants to...
From the moment I arrived I could say that it was not only very organized, but people were very friendly. Little did I know then that those friendly faces would turn out to be good friends. The spiritual element was there from the beginning and grew to fill each of us throughout the weekend. It's 3 days that I would recommend to everyone who wants to grow in faith, make new friends and eat good food.
I could focus on a deeper relationship....
Because I was able to leave my daily life with all its stresses, I could focus on a deeper relationship with Jesus through the loving embrace of a community of believers.
