Join our team. Be the Change!
Each fall in the late 1980’s, volunteers from First Church of the Nazarene in Jackson, would come together to sell homemade baked items and crafts at the Westwood Mall. The funds that were raised were used to assist church attendees.
That passion to serve those in the church, grew to reaching out to those in need in the community. Volunteers began serving at the Interfaith Shelter, hosting a community-wide Thanksgiving Day dinner and changing the oil in cars for single moms. And in August of 2003, our food pantry opened.
The number of ministries and the people being served continued to grow. Because of the growth and passion to serve all of Jackson County, Compassionate Ministries of Jackson County was established in 2012 as a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt organization. Today, CM Jackson continues to build community, partnering with other churches, schools, organizations and businesses, bringing positive change and hope through its Food, Community Transformation and Special Needs ministries.
