Life Is Messy

Life is messy.  People have pasts.  At Detroit Church we recognize that some of the greatest victories come after some epic defeats.  Allowing Christ to redeem your story, then use that story to positively impact others, is actively walking out God's grace.  Meet Tray Little and hear how God is using his story to change the lives of people through his gifts and talents!

"My name is Tray Little, I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. My mom was a teenager mother and I lost my father in a shooting at the age of four. My background consisted of pain, loss, struggle, and confusion. In an attempt to find an identity in the environment I was growing up in, I found a place in the street life.  I began selling drugs, failing in school, and was on a path of destruction. When I was 14, I found God and I have never looked back!!! My goal became to use my voice to influence the community I grew up in, and anyone who would listen, with a message of hope!  Over the last couple of years, I have been traveling around the country rapping, performing at festivals, churches and many different events. I have also spoken at life recovery institutions for those overcoming addictions, a Juvenile detention center and schools. I have been able to work with well-known artists playing for audiences as big as 30,000. 

After I moved back to Detroit I was looking for a church community where I could serve, use my gifts, and impact my city and I found Detroit Church. Ironically I found out that the church moved only a couple blocks away from away from Dexter, the neighborhood where I was raised. I am excited to get back to my roots and believe that God is gonna use my wife and I in big ways in our new community. 

What I love about Detroit Church is that we are committed as a body to get in the messiness of everyday life!  Serve while offering hope, love, unity;  challenging each other and demonstrating Christ's love." ~ Tray Little
