“We are pleased to accredit a ministry committed to enhance the reputation of the Lord Jesus Christ through the provision of high quality, relationship-based street outreach and ongoing support services to mentally ill poor and homeless people in Grand Rapids, Michigan,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.

Founded in 1993, Servants Center (www.scgr.org) in addition to direct service to the homeless, they also provide educational events related to their work throughout Michigan each year.
