Zack Dunlap

Self-proclaimed "lumberjack" but won't watch scary movies about the woods.
An old soul with an amazing wife, four kids, and a desire to be about God's good work in this world, Zack is also on the pastoral staff of Birmingham and Berkley First, a United Methodist Church in Metro Detroit.

Chris Grimes

Pulls off the bow-tie & baseball cap combo very well.
I’m a very laid back, easy to approach guy that loves God and people. We are all people becoming who we were created to be. Nobody is a finish product so, be patient with yourself and others. We are all on our way.

Brian White

We copied this picture from the header.
The Director of Multisite Worship for Berkley First UMC and Tapestry, and someone who was, “singing before I learned how to speak,” Brian loves sharing his love for God with the community and wider world through song. As a devoted husband and father of five boys, there’s no shortage of love is his life and he’s excited and honored to be able to share that love with YOU!

Michelle Jansen

Preferred love language is sarcasm.
When Michelle's wife, Aly, was asked to write a quick bio, it turned out a bit....honest.  Sooo, Michelle is a happy wife and mother to two crazy young kids and has been in ministry for a number of years.  She went to college for Biblical Studies and enjoys the finer things in life like fondue, audiobooks. and sleeping.  💅 

What We Believe

We believe that God’s love and grace are available to all people, and that we have a shared responsibility to reach out across the barriers that divide us one from another to build meaningful, authentic, life-affirming community.
While all truth is God’s truth wherever it is found, we believe in the unique and historic revelation of God in Jesus Christ. Along with Christians around the world, we affirm the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed. If that’s not where you are personally, that’s OK. We welcome you to this online community with open arms.
As United Methodists, we have a particular emphasis on the love and grace through which God pursues us, redeems us, and transforms us over the course of a lifetime.
We are an inclusive community, and truly believe that what unites us in Christ is far greater than anything that divides us. We see diversity as a strength.

Tapestry Church Online is a campus of Birmingham and Berkley First, a United Methodist Church in the Metro Detroit Area.
