Community Development

Building deep relationships with individuals in the community builds an even deeper partnership for transformation within the city. Mission First partners with a variety of religious, educational and philanthropic organizations to serve the city of Jackson. The building that’s done here speaks loudly for racial reconciliation, community restoration and helps develop pride for the community. And, our work is never done!

Work ranges from raking leaves to painting and from cutting grass to reviving abandoned homes. The Community Development Ministry is an opportunity to show the love of Christ through tangible, hands on work. Each year, thousands of volunteers partner with Mission First and leave having experienced personal and community development!
