DeColores Ministries Inc. of Southwest Michigan is a lay-led ministry that focuses on raising up leaders in the church. DeColores means "of colors" in Spanish and is meant to reflect the many colors of Christ. DeColores was born in the spirit of interfaith communion of the Love Feast, the Agape. "DeColores" basically means a person who is living in grace, seeing the world and its variety and beauty as all coming from God. DeColores is a retreat, a movement, and most important, a method of spiritual renewal. Our movement is rich in history and tradition.
We are comprised of members from various Christian denominations for the purpose of fulfilling our mission. We conduct several spiritual retreat weekends each year in order to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ. DeColores weekends are held at various churches throughout the year and are available through sponsorship to anyone who is seeking a life-changing experience and desires to grow closer to Christ Jesus. You can view more information about upcoming events on the weekends page.
Donations can be made online. You may also send to P.O. 225, Niles MI, 49120.
