About Us


Christ ALIVE!

This ministry began in the summer of 1998 with a dozen people meeting in homes and ministering throughout the city of Battle Creek.  It was incorporated with the state of Michigan in May of 2000.  At this time, Pastors Dan and Kathy Schwartz stepped out in faith for full time ministry.

 

The Pastors were both ordained through Pastor Rod Parsley's World Harvest Ministerial Fellowship.  They both have a Diploma of Biblical Studies from Pastor Rod Parsley's World Harvest Bible College Ext. Studies. Pastor Dan Schwartz was also appointed as the Western Michigan Area Director for the Fellowship. They also both completed 3 years of Dr. Mark T. Barclay's Supernatural Ministries Training Institute (SMTI).

 

We look forward to serving the Lord in our community and the surrounding areas for years to come and are believing for a harvest of souls to "bring the Lamb that was slain the reward of His suffering."
