We strive to be characterized by our actions, displaying God’s compassion and a caring heart to those we serve. We believe that community change can occur when those being served are listened to, valued, and loved, unconditionally! God provides hope. God loves all. Build Community. Be the Change!
We are called to share God’s love with all people, including those who have intellectual and physical disabilities. Our special needs ministries include David’s Promise, Lyle Torrant and Kit Young Center’s annual dinner, graduation and prom, and New Song Music Therapy Camp.
CMJC’s Community Collective ministries provide opportunities to give, serve and connect, collectively! Our prayer is that through these acts of service, people will encounter the love of God through his people.
We recognize that poverty in Jackson is real, so we partner with churches, schools, businesses, organizations, and individuals, working together for a hunger-free Jackson. There are many ways to get involved in our food ministries. Whether serving at one of our community food pantries or assembling a food-filled backpack for a child in need, our hope is to find the right fit for you in our efforts to build the community and be the change.
“I know I speak for all of the members of the Torrant and Kit Young students and staff when I say how thankful we are for Compassionate Ministries of Jackson County. This wonderful group plans and executes a prom and graduation event. They plan an evening full of activity as prom and graduation always begins with a sit-down meal. Graduation ceremony follows and next the prom, with all of the bells and whistles that one would expect from a high school prom; themed decorations, photos and of course, dancing. We have created a strong bond between the two organizations, one we truly are lucky to be part of.”
