WHO WE ARE
Reformation OPC (ROPC) started as a Bible study in 2014, was recognized as a mission work in 2018, and held its first worship service on July 22 of that same year. We are a church plant of the Presbytery of Michigan and Ontario. Pastor Shane Bennett was called and installed as the church planting pastor in September of 2019.
Reformation OPC exists for the glory of God as a confessional, Presbyterian congregation. We minister to the Calvin University community, to southeast Grand Rapids, and to the ends of the earth with the assurance that God the Father communicates the benefits of redemption to His people through His Son by the ordinary means of grace, Word, sacrament, and prayer, in the power of the Holy Spirit. As a church, we seek to grow into the image of Christ, the crucified and risen Son of God, while waiting patiently for His return to set all things right in the new heavens and new earth.
These men are elders shared from local Orthodox Presbyterian Churches to aid us until we are established as a particular church.
