One church; multiple locations
Southpoint is one church in two locations (Trenton and Allen Park). Both campuses are equally valued as Southpoint Church. We believe the multi-site strategy helps us accomplish God’s calling for Southpoint to ‘Win Downriver to Christ’. The purpose is to bring the church closer to where people are. A church needs to be IN the community, and close enough to invite friends and family to attend with you.
Both locations are still Southpoint in every way with the same vision, utilizing the same staff, same pastors and same budget. Each location is an extension of the others. Brett Kays is the Lead Minister, with Mark Essick functioning as the Campus Minister for Allen Park. The weekend experiences are similar, if not identical, with live music, multi-media, dynamic children’s programs, and a strong sense of community through C-Groups. Both experience the same message and BiG iDEA, with the Allen Park campus receiving the message through some video teaching, but mostly in person. What makes both sites unique are the people that make up the local congregation.
Southpoint also hosts services for the residents of the Aberdeen Rehabilitation & Skilled Nursing Center across from the Southpoint Trenton campus each Sunday at 10:00 a.m.
