Our Story


Radiant Church is a community of believers who are passionate about Jesus Christ and His Kingdom’s cause. In 1996 Pastor Lee and Jane Cummings along with a handful of friends, were sent to plant a church in Southwest Michigan, originally called Resurrection Life Church of Richland. As a church, we have always been driven to exemplify excellence in ministry to children, youth and adults alike while maintaining a focus on world missions and spirit-filled worship; always being God-centered and people-oriented.

Our first service took place on September 8, 1996 at Gull Lake High School, with 72 people attending. The following year we purchased our current building which allowed us to grow and see people from every walk of life join the Radiant Church family. We were, and still are, constantly amazed at the thousands of incredible people God sends our way and the lengths they are willing to drive to get here.

Since inception, Radiant Church has grown to a thriving congregation that “does life together.” Every week, hundreds of people get together in Community Groups all over Southwest Michigan, studying, talking and praying together, while making life-long friendships and serving others. We believe that we have only begun to see what God has in store for us, and we look to the future with great anticipation.
