During 1994, local residents on Mackinac Island began to meet to discuss forming a Bible-based, year-round ministry on Mackinac Island for mainly its residents. By 1995, The Mackinac Island Bible Church was born and a pastor was brought in a year later to lead the growing work. Soon, it was evident that MIBC became a gospel "Mission Outpost" as we began to minister to summer workers and visitors from all over the world each tourist season. Our DNA changed as we saw opportunities to introduce people to a relationship with Jesus, disciple them and then say "good bye," sending them back to where they came from to spread what they had heard and seen of Jesus and His love! Rather than simply retaining people to build a local ministry, we've spread the Gospel around the world by those who have come our way - the nations come to us! This makes a faith ministry like no other!
