2017 Christian Leaders of the Future Event


Mississippi Christian Living, in partnership with Belhaven University, honored our ninth class of Christian Leaders of the Future at an afternoon event on Belhaven’s campus on March 6.


Two interactive back-to-back workshops were followed by a reception and an awards presentation. John Nix Arledge and Bailey Holcombe were the recipients of the two $1,000 scholarships.
