Detour Ministries

Mission

Detour Ministries is a marketplace ministry seeking to honor and glorify God. We support, unify and encourage the body of Christ, serving both individual believers and Christian ministries. Throughout every facet of Detour Ministries, our vision remains the same: we exist to develop and deepen a relationship with Jesus Christ in those we serve.

There are four reasons why Detour exists: 1 ) To unify the body of Christ, 2 ) To support the body of Christ, 3 ) To encourage the body of Christ, and 4 ) To develop the body of Christ.
