Boyne City Site Pastor

Boyne City, Michigan //

About Genesis Church

Genesis Church is a multisite church ministry in Northern Michigan.  We began in Petoskey in 2005 and have since added additional sites in Boyne City and Harbor Springs.  While pursuing the larger mission together, each site contextualizes our vision and values in their local community.  Worship and teaching is live in each location with a teaching team that coordinates messages and shares responsibilities.

Our Mission

To Know Christ and Make Him Known.

Our Vision

We envision God using Genesis Church as a catalyst of hope and transformation for Boyne City as we actively engage our community and equip Families to be Christ-Centered.

Genesis Church exists to know Christ and to make Him known. Genesis is a place of belonging no matter where you are on your journey with God and a place where the leadership challenges and equips fellow followers to become more like Jesus by sharing the Gospel and serving others in meaningful ways.  Our values center around the following phrases:

  1. Open Handed (generosity)
  2. Outreach Focused (others first)
  3. Keeping it Real (authenticity)
  4. Bringing our Best (excellence)
  5. Better Together (building partnerships to do more)

About Genesis Boyne City

Nestled along Lake Charlevoix, Boyne City is a gem in Northern Michigan's crown of jewels. This growing, bustling city has it all: music, art, fun, outdoor activities, dining, shopping, biking, skiing, and more. With 3,500 year-round residents that swells to many times that size in the summer months, Boyne City’s charm is enticing.  Read more at

The ministry of Genesis Boyne was launched in 2010 to bring a gospel-centered church to the growing community of Boyne City. We have a good reputation with strong roots in the community, but we have been stalled in our mission by a pastoral transition and lack of meeting space during COVID. We are currently stable with an interim site director and a beautiful meeting space at the City Hall. We have guidance and support from the larger Genesis Church and we look forward to reinvigorating and expanding our gospel impact in Boyne City.
