About us.

The Macomb County Ministerial Alliance is comprised of great Men and Women of the faith. We are all dedicated to bringing Godly change to Macomb County. We believe in activating fair and just opportunities in our community. We support and honor our community leaders and stand as spiritual advisement for them when needed.

Each of the Ministers connected comes from a different walk of life. However, each of us together creates a strong team of people full of faith and determined to see justice and unity in our communities.

Meet Our President

Pastor Terence Standifer

Pastor Terence Standifer served as pastor at Plesant Valley Missionary Baptist Church in Gary, Indiana for twelve years before moving to Michigan. In November 2001 Reverend Terence Standifer accepted his position as Pastor of Tried Stone Missionary Baptist Church, located in Clinton Township Michigan. He joined the Macomb County Ministerial Alliance in the year 2002. He served as vice-president for several years and is now the current president of MCMA.


The Angel Tree Program is a prison ministry which involves adopting children whose parents are incarcerated, for the purpose of blessing them with gifts for Christmas on behalf of that parent. Angel Tree can bring a great blessing to us and to the prisoners’ families to whom we minister. Angel Tree is a wonderful way to express Christ’s love. It helps open hearts to receive the most important Gift, salvation and forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ. Angel Tree is a great vehicle to introduce these families to our churches and enfold them into the body of Christ through continued ministry. Angel tree will honor our requests to match the same children with our churches each year that the child remains eligible.


Each year for the past 14 years, a church that is a member of the Macomb County Ministerial Alliance has volunteered to be the host church and volunteers from the other churches work with the host church to meet the needs of the people. Sept 11- 18, 2015 Greater New Hope Missionary Baptist, under the leadership of Pastor John Mack was the host church. During that week we served approximately 30 men. The goal of the Macomb Ministerial Alliance and the MCREST committee is to encourage participation from all the churches who are members of the Alliance giving them a sense of belonging and opportunity to provide support in any way they can. Perhaps their church is not big enough to house the homeless but maybe they can provide lunch for a day, bus cards or toiletries etc. We just want every church to know that any help they are able to provide is appreciated. After all this ministry is not about us, but about God getting the glory from using us. MCMA has decided to participate in MCREST program every other year to allow opportunities to help the community in other ways. This year we are working with the Angel Tree Prison Ministry.


The MLK  Breakfast is a community event geared toward recognizing the great work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This event brings together the Macomb County community leaders from various cities and townships. We highlight some of the gifted young children and reward community leaders who are exemplary models of bringing together a strong diverse community. Our annual keynote speaker provides insight and clarity on where we are as a community and where we are going. You can join us next year February 18, 2018 and please feel free to contact us for more details. Contact Us
