Camps and Ministries

The East Michigan Conference is not a church, but rather a collection of (currently) 38 churches. The Free Methodist Church USA organizes its churches into conferences worldwide, so as to guide and connect local churches most efficiently.

The churches in our conference vary widely. Some are traditional churches with organs and pianos. Some are contemporary churches with drums and guitars. Some contain mostly younger people and some contain mostly older people. Some have been around for decades, and others just a couple of years. Some are multi-ethnic and some are not. But they are all Free Methodist Churches and therefore agree on the basics.
