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. 

  • ULM Students

    Led by Jesse & Chandler Beard and Joseph McClung (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 students at ULM. More than doing good deeds, we long to see the gospel permeate and saturate the lives of everyone connected to the college. 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.

  • FOSTER CARE Families

    Led by Jarrod and Jennifer Hawthorne (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 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!

  • International students & Families

    Led by Joseph & Emily Stogner (find us on Facebook)

    We currently meet on Thursday nights in our homes. We eat, fellowship, pray, and discuss scripture and how it applies to the context of our daily lives and who God is. Our mission is to reach international students and families in the Monroe/ West Monroe area. We desire to see them come to know Christ and equipped to bring the gospel to the peoples of their heart language. We continually pray about ways in which we can serve this community and invite them into our homes throughout the week as well as Sunday morning gatherings. 

  • Widow & Elderly Care

    Led by John & Elizabeth Justice (find us on Facebook)

    Desiring to reach elderly, widows, & widowers who are still in their homes but need help with a few small things around their house. We meet on Thursdays in our home to engage in community, prayer, and fellowship.
