ABOUT New Faith Temple (CDC)
Some neighborhoods in Grand Rapids have suffered immense economic decline and related urban issues related to recessions. Rev. Deidric I. Tupper, President / CEO of New Faith Temple Community Development Corporation, saw more than declining conditions in the Grand Rapids community. With hopelessness in the people, he knew the only way to bring hope to people was to expand their possibilities and increase their expectations. From this, with the support from New Faith Temple Church of God in Christ, he founded New Faith Temple CDC and the work continues to focus on expanding possibilities and increasing expectations.
The offices are located in the Southeast Neighborhood and the organization is devoted to serving the entire Grand Rapids community with Southeast as its primary community. New Faith Temple CDC good works are not bound by geography; Rev. Tupper’s vision is truly regional. Based upon the growing need for New Faith Temple CDC services, work will continue to take place in other locations in and around Grand Rapids.
