Who We Are


Vision Statement

The love of Christ compels us to unite together as local Church and Christian Leaders in order to see the greater Lansing area transformed by Christ.


What Is COGL?

COGL (The Church of Greater Lansing) is a network of regional Pastors and Christian Leaders in Ingham, Eaton and Clinton counties who joined forces in 2008 to help make an indelible spiritual and practical impact on Lansing and its surrounding communities. We partner with a variety of churches, organizations, and businesses to pray for and seek the peace and prosperity of our shared community and the city-dwellers therein.
