The story is similar to I AM Productions in another way: everyone involved dove headfirst into the process. Stitching Up Detroit followed. The all-teen collective owns two four-station presses, which the members can use for independent commissions after a training period of several months. It may soon become a fully-independent cooperative business. The founders, who had previously worked for temp agencies and were scraping by, now make livable wages and hope to have 20 employees in the next five years. Grace in Action helps the businesses in three main areas: strategy feasibility work, marketing, business planning , back office services accounting, legal, invoicing , and skills training classes in coding, graphic design, cooperative incubation, and more.
It also acts as an office and workplace until the businesses are able to branch out.
In everything but name, the church is a business incubator. All of the businesses at Grace in Action started when a community member approached church leadership with an idea. That's one of the founding principles of Grace in Action—the shape of church would arise from the community itself. Church of the Messiah's first business was founded by a mother who was sick of working two jobs and had a tea recipe the community loved.
Now, Nikki's Ginger Tea is shelf stable and can be found at 50 stores across the state, including Whole Foods. Rising employment opportunities Brother Bob Malloy Not everyone can be an entrepreneur. But business incubation isn't the only way Detroit churches make an economic impact.

But perhaps more crucial to that mission are its businesses, which provide entrepreneurial and job skill training to its employees.
Earthworks Urban Garden , started in next to its Meldrum Street location, grows food for the meal program and its Thursday market. It also offers gardening classes and after-school programming for youth. The garden more recently started its Earthworks Training Program, or EAT, which is a nine-month intensive course for those interested in either starting their own urban agriculture business or working in the field. Students learn everything related to growing organic produce in a team-based environment, and several graduates have started their own businesses or farms after taking the course.
The bakery employs returning citizens and those in drug treatment through the ROPE program "Reaching Our Potential Everyday" , training them in both the soft skills of customer service and hard skills of baking. Throughout the course of the one-year program, the men live together at the ROPE house, where they receive counseling services in addition to employment. That's why we're constantly looking for ways to support independence beyond people coming here to eat.

They're also hubs for the Equitable Internet Initiative, a program that will provide a powerful, 1 gigabit Wi-Fi connection to people in three neighborhoods the third is in the North End. All of these programs and startups emerged when church leaders listened to members of their congregations and communities. One item kept coming up as a persistent need: economic opportunity.
And if business support services aren't easily accessible in these neighborhoods, it doesn't matter if it's a church that's prividing that opportunity.
