We equip local churches to make disciples in Mississippi and around the world.
Unifying and multiplying local churches
We are a network of over 2,000 different churches joining together to share the Gospel with our state and the world beyond. Whether you’re a leader, a church member, or brand new, we’re excited you’re here.
Helping leaders make disciples
Our work starts with training up faithful leaders who can in turn disciple their own churches to love and spread the Gospel.
We’re here to support your church: teaching, leading, programs, training, and prayer.
