Who We Are - Vanguard NorthVanguard North


It is our privilege to greet you on behalf of Vanguard North Church and, more importantly, Jesus Christ!

If you’re wondering who we are, Vanguard North Church is an agent for change and restoration in the inner city neighborhoods, by inspiring followers of Christ to lay down their lives so God’s kingdom can be forcefully advanced. We minister, reach out, and partner with the beautiful people of Kalamazoo’s Northside Neighborhood.

We are a community of people whose primary focus is on the whole person’s spirit, soul and body. Our premise for this is that Jesus is the only way to bring hope and a future, but we must meet people where they are at in order to help them discover where they need to be.

Our mission is to transform the community with New Life through the Cross.
It may give you comfort to know that you will not be alone. You will also find real people here. You will meet others who have begun life restless and have come to find rest in God. At Vanguard North Church you will find fellowship and community; we are part of the family of God and would rejoice to have you join us.

In short, you will find us to be a God centered, caring community of individuals who are excited about having the opportunity to extend to you the same love, hope and joy we have received from the Lord. We extend to you a cordial invitation to join us in this morning worship, to attend one of our house churches available to you throughout the week, to participate in street ministry, and to be a Christ disciple. Please take a moment to get to know us better.

Sincerely Yours in Christ,
Pastors Michael & Yolanda Stewart
