Jesus Loves Detroit Church is a Christian, Non-Denominational , Evangelistic, Outreach Church. It was founded by Kevin Pelto, and the Holy Spirit in 2008. Kevin had been helping people in Jesus’s name, and was lead to name this effort, so Jesus would receive the credit. Beginning members were a small group of Kevin, Luke, Bridget, Stanley, Andy, and Marion. They all contributed prayer, money, time, and effort. Bridget, Stanley, Andy, and Marion have all gone on to Heaven. Kevin started the process to incorporate the church at this time, but God had other plans. God told him, ( Sit down Boy, you are not ready yet. Just keep doing what you are doing, and I will let you know when its MY time!) Kevin was a entrepreneur and businessman who financed everything with his own money. God also told him, ( Dude, its never been about the money, its not about the money now, and its never going to be about the money.) In Kevin’s words, I went through a lot of life, and death. I had to learn its not about me. I needed to be humbled. I needed to sacrificially serve my brothers and sisters. I had to fix my eyes on the unseen, not the seen. I needed to grow up spiritually, and with God’s help, I did! Today, Kevin is an ordained, licensed, minister, and the Pastor of the church. Along with his wife Nancy, they are the spiritual leaders of the church. JLD Church is a 501-C3 charitable organization, licensed as a church, with all the benefits, and responsibility’s of a church. It does not have the traditional church building, instead it leases office, study, meeting, storage, and worship facilities. Although we have the space, we prefer that instead of folk’s coming to church, the church comes to them. We prefer to have church, outside, in the field’s of inner-city Detroit, where our people are. We put on the big Feast’s, that are Jesus Party’s, that we call church. Our volunteers, who are called ( Agents of Grace) are a wide mix of God’s children. Men, women, and children of all races, genders, ages, occupations, political affiliations, economic levels, education, and geography are represented. Our passion is to have the kind of church that God would approve of, the Holy Spirit would flow through everyone, and Jesus himself, would walk 50 miles to attend!
