Mississippi River Ministry
The Mississippi river region is a land of dichotomies. While it has served as an icon of commerce for generations, the Mississippi river winds its way through some of the most impoverished and underserved areas in the nation. It’s rural terrain holds many of the same struggles, like drug abuse and homelessness, that are usually associated with inner-city life. And while it’s located securely in the Bible belt, much of the population is unreached with the gospel.
Over 50 individual ministry efforts comprise the Mississippi River Ministry offering a wide range of services from food to childcare to job training to education. By ministering to and meeting physical needs of people living in this underserved area, doors are opened for the gospel.
