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.


As a network, we connect you with church communities and leaders and keep you updated with news, events, and service opportunities.


Our ultimate goal is to spread the word of God, so we offer the volunteer opportunities, education, and tools to help you reach your community and the world.

Brand Guidelines

“Whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again.”

John 4:14 ESV

We believe that Jesus’ love is like a river, flowing and alive. Through his death on the cross, he offers nourishment and quenches the thirst of all who are looking to be full to the brim. This message is the reason we exist.
