Intercultural Fellowship

Sunday, January 21

There are many nations represented in the Jackson Metro Area, and many Internationals living here have never heard the truth of the Gospel. This ministry bridges local churches with the international community.

What an amazing opportunity to get to know folks from around the world while showing them God’s love!
