Mission First

Transformation in Motion

What is Mission First? For some, it’s a refuge. It’s a place of encouragement. It’s help. For others, it’s a place of hope. But for all, it’s a place of practical help and spiritual light - it’s an oasis in the center of the Metro Jackson area.

Mission First, founded in 1999, is an inner city, non-profit missions organization designed to serve others the way Christ served during his time here on earth. We have six main programs that meet tangible needs and share Christ. Those programs meet people right at their point of need - children’s educational programming, sports ministries, community development programming, medical & dental services, legal assistance and a comprehensive wellness program.
