Madison and Ridgeland, Mississippi

The communities of Madison and Ridgeland sit just north of Mississippi’s capitol city of Jackson.

Once a tiny suburb, Madison is now one of the fastest growing communities in the state, boasting a 75% increase in population since 2000. Madison is considered the best place to live in Mississippi, making it desirable for both families and industry.

Ridgeland has become a destination spot for those traveling the Natchez Trace and visiting the Ross Barnett Reservoir. It is also a place of tremendous growth in recent years, becoming one of Mississippi’s most successful areas for business and industry.

In many ways, Madison County is thriving, but it remains a community in deep spiritual need. Presently, about 70% of people in the Madison and Ridgeland communities are disconnected from church. Moreover, only 17% of our community is actively evangelical, meaning fewer than one in five of our neighbors are consistently engaged in a gospel-preaching church. These numbers represent real people who are living apart from Christ and His body, the church.

We simply cannot live with so many thousands of people disengaged from Jesus and the life-giving community of His church. Our hope in starting Harvest Church is to join with God in the great work He is doing in Madison County by growing and multiplying disciples of Jesus. This requires a commitment to love our neighbors deeply, to serve our local schools, and to live as the church within our community every day of the week.
