our Missional Communities

You can join an MC to connect with a group of people who meet sometime during the week to learn together how the gospel is to be lived out. This happens in prayer, Bible study, proactive mission work, 

and just doing the everyday stuff of life together. 

Contact an MC leader listed below with any questions you have. 

  • the parkview Apartment

    Led by Kendrick & Amelia Banks (click our name to email or find us on Facebook)

    We usually gather on Wednesday evening for family dinner and/or dessert and coffee. This is a time for fellowship and celebrating God's grace as we pray for one another and celebrate the grace of God in the mission before us. All are welcome to family dinner. 

    Our shared mission is bringing others along with us in serving and reaching the kids who reside in the Parkview Apartments. This is primarily through a Thursday night ministry at First Baptist Church in downtown Monroe. More than doing good deeds, we long to see the gospel permeate and saturate the lives of everyone connected to this ministry. We pray God be glorified as we make disciples of Christ.

    Additionally we are burdened for those in our everyday lives, so mission is also shared in the everyday things of life as interact with classmates, coworkers, and neighbors.


    Led by Jarrod and Jennifer Hawthorne (email or find us on Facebook)

    Our MC gathers as family to share meals in our homes and various restaurants around the Monroe area. We eat good food, love on staff at restaurants, bless them with our business and generous tipping, and talk about our lives and continual need for Jesus and each other. 

    We are on mission currently at our local university -ULM as well as being and supporting local foster families and other workers in the foster care system. We have a desire to plant a missional community in the next year to engage and reach others in the fostering world through the gospel. 

    Our desire is to be servant missionaries in Monroe that bring the love and grace of God to everyone we meet while growing together as family and seeing more disciples of Jesus created and sent out for the glory of Jesus alone!


    Led by Scott and Kelly Bonner (email or find us on Facebook)

    We are currently considering the need in our area and seeking God to be led by Him to a mission focus. We usually gather on Sunday evenings for good food and fellowship. You are welcome to join us. Just check in and we'll let you know the plan. 

  • List Item

    Led by Jesse & Chandler Beard and Joseph & Emily Stogner (email or Facebook)

    We gather weekly in the homes of various MC members. We eat, fellowship, play games, and often go to events downtown together. Any time we gather we celebrate how God good has been in each of our lives, and we grow together as family striving to be on mission together in everyday life. Our mission focus currently is our respective neighborhoods, and we are praying for God to lead us to a specific people to whom we can be a blessing and proclaim the gospel. 

Join  us  for  worship

We gather to worship on Sunday mornings at 11am 

You'll find us at 220 Desiard St. in downtown Monroe at The Palace. Come as you are!
