At Home & Around the World
HOPE FOR THE FUTURE, Malawi Africa Jackson First Baptist is actively partnering with Hope For the Future by sending mission teams to Malawi twice a year. During this partnership, we have seen God's work first hand as 32 churches have been planted in local villages. When we are not in Malawi, we also support children in two feeding centers, which feed over 200 children each day. Looking forward and pressing onward, we are excited about the grand opening of Hope For the Future Pastor Training Center in May of 2018 Once opened, the Training Center has a goal of training 100 pastors for 100 near by villages.
BAPTIST MEDICAL & DENTAL MISSIONS INTERNATIONAL, Honduras Jackson FBC has also partnered with BMDMI to do medical missions in Honduras as we seek to plant churches throughout the nations. Each year, a dedicated team from our area travels to Honduras to serve and share with those that are physically sick and those that are spiritually sick. In July of 2017 we will plant our second church in six years.
NORTH AMERICAN MISSION BOARD We are now partnering with NAMB to plant a church in one of 32 Send Cities in the USA as well as partnering with The Way of the Cross International Church in Marrieta, Ga.
JACKSON, GA Locally we have begun a ministry in a very impoverished area of our county. We call this site, “Project Turnaround.” Volunteers meet with local school children to build relationships through tutoring, Bible study and various other activities. Also, our Hand 2 Hand ministry distributes food to those in our county which have fallen on hard times and need food for both the body and soul.
Whether its locally, nationally, or internationally we are all in when it comes to loving God and making disciples of all people.
