The Jackson Missions Cohort (J-MC)

Disciples of Christ gathering in community and growing deeper roots in Christ to produce fruitful outreach and ministry in God’s global mission.

September 11–November 15, 2021

The Jackson Missions Cohort (J-MC) is an intentional community seeking to train and mentor those who seek to use their gifts in God's global mission.

Through interactive discussions, each participant is trained and mentored in gospel foundations, evangelism, mission, prayer, cross-cultural dynamics, vocation, calling, and international ministry. The goal of J-MC is to ignite and equip participants toward kingdom mission and ministry by helping them understand who they are in Christ. The overflow of this understanding is the root and fuel for ministry and mission.

The 10-week cohort includes community discussions (one night per week), mentoring, time with veteran missionaries, and strategic connection points with international ministries in the city of Jackson. J-MC is a ministry of Mission to The World (MTW) and is led by veteran MTW missionaries and local PCA ministry leaders.



Disciples of Christ gathering in community and growing deeper roots in Christ to produce fruitful outreach and ministry in God’s global mission.


Gospel of the Kingdom: Our identity in Christ is the root of fruitful kingdom mission and ministry. We want to be grounded in gospel truth.

Discipleship & Evangelism: Jesus commanded the Church to make disciples. We want to disciple, to mentor, and to encourage disciple making and multiplication.

The Nations: Jesus commanded His disciples to go to all nations. We want to help people discover their role in God’s Great Commission to the nations of the world as prayers, goers, senders, mobilizers and welcomers.

The Church: God uses His Church to accomplish His Great Commission. We want to partner with the local church in Great Commission discipleship.
