The church at Tintern takes seriously the directive to "go and make disciples of all nations." While we understand this command to be the responsibility of every Christian to make disciples wherever we find ourselves, we recognize the merit and value of those willing to go out into the world and take this message far from home.

Micah 6 (Dylan Pyeatt)
Dylan Pyeatt with Micah 6 formerly served the Tintern Church of Christ, but felt God's calling on his life to live in community with those in poverty in Pontiac, Michigan in the US. Dylan joined a group of brothers and sisters who felt the same call, many of whom Dylan had known during his university days.
They currently live in solidarity with their neighbours sharing the good news of God's love in unique and creative ways. One of the main efforts they are involved with is their community gardens. The area they live in is classified as a "food desert," so the need for fresh nutritious produce is extremely high. The Micah 6 community has gardens where they grow fruits and vegetables and sell them at the storefront that they own (Sprout).
In addition to caring for people's physical needs, they are also sharing God's love through the church they started which meets in the basement of the vegetable store: called "The Underground." To learn more about the Micah 6 community and their mission, check out their website. View the current Micah 6 newsletter here. On Sunday February 7, 2021 we met with Dylan & Carrie over Zoom.
