RACIAL RECONCILIATION CELEBRATION MONTH
Mission Mississippi has – since 1993 – been dedicated to the underlying truth that all persons of all races are called to live in unity and harmony in Mississippi. There is a need to overcome the traditional barriers that have in the past separated the people of our State and our communities.
The goal of Mission Mississippi is to create an environment in which it is safe to talk about deep issues of race relations so that genuine and meaningful relationships can be developed among all our fellow citizens across racial and denominational lines.
LEGISLATIVE PRAYER BREAKFAST
In 2015, Mission Mississippi in association with 12 denominational leaders as well as Speaker of the House Phillip Gunn and President of the Senate, Lt. Governor Tate Reeves hosted the Inaugural Legislative Prayer Breakfast. This is first time the House and Senate Leadership convened such an event.
This event brings together the Governor, Members of the Mississippi legislature and members of the Mississippi Supreme Court for a time of prayer.
Now and annual event, the breakfast is held in January at the First Baptist Church in Jackson, Mississippi.
Our Mission Mississippi groups meet weekly or monthly for prayer, encouragement and discussion of current racial issues. The purpose of the gatherings is to build deeper relationships across racial lines to bring about positive change in Mississippi communities.
DAYS OF DIALOGUE
The purpose of a Day of Dialogue is to gather the Christian community together across racial and denominational lines to discuss topics openly and unapologetically.
This free one-day event is organized by Mission Mississippi with the support of local church or business leadership, which has been expanding its efforts statewide.
