Our Journey started 100 years ago, and we are still growing
The building we use today was founded in 1921 as the Oak Knoll Sanitarium, a sanctuary for individuals who needed medical care and consideration.
The building is now owned by Judah International Ministries, serving Mackinaw and the surrounding communities through our children and youth education, outreach programs and weekly worship services.
Even now, 100 years since the original sanitarium, our building is still considered a "hospital" - a haven of rest for those in our community who are in need.
Now is the time for growth. It’s all about the community and the anticipation of their needs. We want to be ready to make more room for people to come to know Jesus and get plugged into programming to support their growth and to expand our outreach.
Our International Council of Covenant Ministries (ICCM) endeavors to make an impact by equipping leaders with the financial tools, skills, and training to run effective ministries.
We have been making an impact in our local community and for church leaders across the country for over 50 years.
