A Military Friendly Church is one which loves and welcomes military members and families into its fellowship. This is a church in which military members and families can expect to be embraced with open arms and can also anticipate being genuinely invited to participate in the life and ministry of the church.
There is already in place an informal network of military-friendly churches known to and through the masses of military members and families, assigned to installations scattered across the U.S. and the world.
As a service to military members and families the MMN maintains a directory of military-friendly churches listed on this web site.
