Motown Mission began as a one week mission trip hosted at Metropolitan UMC for 7 middle school students in 2005. Today Motown Mission is an independent mission destination, still hosted by our Metro friends, and catering to over 700 United Methodist youth, young adults, and more each year. Participants live at Metro UMC, work to rebuild, replant, feed and experience Detroit alongside the city’s residents, and reflect on how God is calling us all into hands-on action that shares the love and justice of Jesus Christ.

Preparations for rehab of our new Motown Mission property at 1449 Webb continue. We are now looking for builders, architects, and engineers that can help us put together the plans necessary for bringing this 4 unit apartment building back up to full use. More info on how we will be using the Foundry House at motownmission.org/stories/foundryhouse. These accomodations are an easy drive from partners like the NOAH Project, Michigan Urban Farming Initiative, Joy-Southfield Community Development and others. It is a perfect home base for VIM groups, weekend youth retreats, and more. Check with us to see if your partner org is interested in housing you at the Foundry House, or set up a week with Motown Mission at our registration page.
