LOVEfirst is a movement to care for the people in our state that God loves, but are often overlooked and forgotten. In 2017, we launched a new effort to share God's love and the life change found through Jesus with the Mississippi prison population. We can't believe what God has unfolded over the past year and look forward to continuing this movement as we march forward.

Each of our five campuses are partnering with correctional facilities. We are focusing on serving these facilities through ongoing ministry. In addition, we have opportunities to serve alongside transitional ministries across the state. There is a place for all of us to participate and be involved. Together, we can help men and women receive God's love and experience life change in Jesus Christ.

Our Pinelake campuses have partnered with 8 correctional facilities to share God's hope and love with nearly 10,000 inmates.

How you can LOVE first


God can use your unique gifts to love and minister to the prisoners in our state. Sign up below to receive information of on-going ministry needs such as Bible study opportunities for prisoners, mentoring, or even care for family members who are awaiting their release.



Continue to pray for those incarcerated. Every life matters to God and they too can experience life change. Ask God to show you how you can play a role in reaching these men, women and families, one story at a time. 


When you give toward Making Room, Pinelake's initiative to follow God toward making more room in our vision, hearts and finances, you'll help provide resources to fuel our prison ministry needs. Your generosity will have an eternal impact!
