Kris McCormick Cain serves in a number of areas, including Detroit and nearby areas in southeast Michigan, as well as Ontario, Canada. Whether in densely populated urban areas or small communities, Kris’ desire is to share the hope of Christ with lost and broken people wherever he goes.
The people Kris ministers to are from all walks of life and diverse ethnic groups. The dominant religions in the area are Catholic, a wide range of evangelical denominations, and Islam.
The greatest need Kris has seen is for the transformation that comes through the truth of God’s Word. With individuals and families coming from a wide range of situations, there is a desperate need to show love and hope. Many in this area need food, shelter, and clothing, and local churches need to be more equipped to minister to these hurting people.
After seeing these needs, Kris felt the call to reach the lost and broken in his community with the love and hope of the gospel message. He has started a number of different ministries that reach sex-trafficked individuals, suicidal individuals, those living on the streets, and inmates.
Kris runs two versions of the New Hope Ministries program. One is just called New Hope Ministries for suicidal individuals and the other is called New Hope STAW for sex-trafficked girls. Christian women volunteer to serve and mentor these abused girls and women, who need healing from their time in bondage. The ministry meets the women’s practical needs, studies God’s Word with them, and offers them unconditional love.
In addition to New Hope Ministries, Kris leads a summer outreach in neighborhood parks, serves as a volunteer chaplain for the local prison system when needed, and does a street ministry outreach.
The various ministries Kris has started or continued meet many of the needs in communities he serves, and help provide awareness of the reality of issues like sex-trafficking, homelessness, and suicide. Kris’ heart is to share the love of Christ with no strings attached, introducing hurting and broken individuals to the ultimate healer with the desire that they would be discipled into fully devoted followers of Christ.
Kris has served as InFaith field staff since 2006.
Kris was raised in a church started by InFaith, and has been around InFaith missionaries all his life. Inspired by the diversity of ministries and transparency of InFaith missionaries, Kris felt called to serve through InFaith after returning to the states from ministry in North Africa.
Kris went to Bible College after completing his Bachelor of Arts, and is an ordained minister.
