About Us

About Mississippi Christian Living
(formerly Metro Christian Living)

Our mission at Mississippi Christian Living is to point people to Christ, and to enrich and improve their lives.

Whether it’s our monthly print magazine, website, social media accounts, podcast, or e-digest, we provide a spiritual boost and practical help for believers as they seek to love God and others.

In MCL magazine, we share stories about the amazing ways God is at work in the lives of Mississippi Christians. Our columnists reveal how God is moving in their own hearts, as well as insights on topics such as motherhood, marriage, and health and wellness.

In addition to producing content, we also pour into the next generation of Christ-followers by awarding two scholarships to high-school seniors each year.

In everything we do, we aim to “show forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”–1 Peter 2:9b.
