Our Team

Who We Are

Portable Church® Industries launched in 1994 with one goal: partner with portable churches that want to launch strong and thrive. After serving thousands of churches, our team understands the unique challenges facing leaders responsible for a mobile church.

Today we have nearly 50 full-time employees and dedicated design, manufacturing, warehousing, and integration facilities based near Detroit, Michigan. With a continued commitment to innovation, we look forward to a long future where we partner, equip, and empower new local churches to launch and thrive in rented spaces across North America.

How We See What Could Be

We envision a world where the Kingdom of Christ is expanding as the gospel is shared effectively through new and existing local churches.

Why We Are Excited to Work

We contribute to this vision by helping those churches that meet in rented spaces launch well, be operationally sustainable, and thrive with minimum capital.
