Jackson First Baptist is actively partnering with Hope For the Future by sending mission teams to Malawi multiple times a year. During this partnership, we have seen God's work first hand as 32 churches have been planted in local villages around Zomba. JFBC has been honored to build 3 of those churches: Muherwia, Mpyupyu and Bwanali. 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 dedication of The Tom Gentry Bible Training Center in May of 2018 with a goal of training 100 pastors for 100 nearby villages. In November of 2018 the first class of 16 men began their journey.
JFBC began working with
JFBC ministers alongside Kenyan missionaries who are working in the Republic of South Sudan. They are seeking to spread the gospel to the Taposa tribe, one village at a time. The government has asked them to establish a school in the area, so that project is underway.
JFBC 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. We will soon learn which area will be assigned to us and are ready to begin that work.
JACKSON - Through a partnership with other local churches, we have begun a ministry in an 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. Our Hand 2 Hand food pantry ministry distributes food each month to those in our county which have fallen on hard times and need food for both the body and soul. Loads of Love shares the gospel along with laundry supplies at local laundromats on a regular basis.
MARIETTA - We are currently partnering with The Way of the Cross in Marietta, GA. The Way is an international church plant and we are blessed to be a consulting, a financial and a prayer partner as they reach out to their community with the Gospel.
Whether its locally, nationally, or internationally JFBC is all in when it comes to loving God and making disciples of all people.
