Friendship Sports International - Grand Rapids Michigan


The Wallace Family

The Wallace’s lead the FSI ministry in Grand Rapids Michigan.

The Wallace’s relationship FSI began in 1995 when Matt went with FSI to Honduras with his college baseball team on a life-changing trip to play baseball and serve in ministry. Jim and Jenny King, the Directors of Friendship Sports, had a major impact on our lives both as mentors as a young married couple, and in our desires towards ministry. Recently opportunity has risen to partner with FSI while serving here in the Midwest. We strongly believe in the work of FSI, which is to live out the great commission: Matthew 28:19-20 NLT “Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” The focus is simple: discipleship through missions. Frequent trips to Detroit and Grand Rapids as well as international trips to Haiti, Guatemala and/or Honduras are provided. Bible studies, speaking engagements, and mentorship has been established as a part of their ministry. Currently the ministry has focused on the Campus of Cornerstone University and they continue to build relationships with other churches and groups around the city.

Cornerstone University

The opportunities of ministry at Cornerstone are immense. Some may be thinking, why a Christian college?The opportunities of ministry at Cornerstone are immense. Some may be thinking, why a Christian college? FSI believes it is one of the most important mission fields. This generation of believers are tomorrow's church leaders and they are faced with a crazy world to steer through with lots of confusing voices. Students at a Christian college often come from a wide variety of backgrounds and are very open to spiritual growth. Especially in athletics. We desire to build relationships with students, coaches and teams to help mentor and lead Bible studies as we strive to challenge them to develop a Christ centered worldview. We want to help them think globally with the mission of Christ and allow God to speak and work on their hearts through service. God has continued to confirm our work with students on the campus of Cornerstone and we are excited to partner with this Christ centered University.


Grand Rapids Michigan
