Our Mission

Awaken Church exists to inspire generations to know Jesus Christ and make him known.

Our Values

Our Values help us describe the type of culture we want Awaken to be.

Values are the intersection of our beliefs, leadership, giftings and the needs of the Grand Ledge community we serve. We have many values, but we've listed 7 of our most important and unique.

A REDEMPTIVE CULTURE

Everything we do in our church is filtered through the lens of the Gospel - the Good News that Jesus lived, died, and was resurrected. The new life that Jesus offers changes everything.

e are made new and celerate stories of life change. These stories motivate us and are the reason we exist.

A REAL CULTURE

Each of us has parts of our story that we'd rather hide. But we believe that being a church that is open about our pain and failure is the pathway to finding true strength and healing.

MEET THE LEADERS

STEVE HUBBARD, Lead Pastor

Steve is Lead Pastor of Awaken Church.  Steve, along with his wife, Courtney, and their energetic kids (Natalie, Isaiah, and Faith), planted Awaken Church with the hopes of it becoming a life-giving community of faith.  Steve does most of the teachings, works with church planters-in-progress, and develops the vision for the church.

He is a Midwest kind of guy.  He loves the outdoors – hunting, fishing, disc golf, hiking, and cycling – anything to get outside in the great state of Michigan.  The only thing keeping him “in-doors” is an opportunity to watch a Star Wars Saga.
