about Jubilee Conference

Our mission is to unite churches,  non-profits,  and government agencies to strategically meet the needs of the poor in Jackson.

In 1982 the "Jubilee Conference" was hosted at Belhaven University in what was a highly successful first year. Unfortunately, this success meant that the event moved to another city – Chicago. Today, this annual gathering boasts thousands of practitioners that are impacting the poor in their communities in Jesus' name. This conference, born in Jackson, MS, became the organization now known as The Christian Community Development Association (CCDA).  So what about Jackson?

We believe it's time to start our own movement of churches that are strategically engaged in God's heart for the poor in this city. We believe that the best solutions for holistic change are done together.  

In 2015 the Jubilee conference was re-born and focused on celebrating the incredible work happening throughout Jackson and giving tools to every-day people to become better engaged in these current successes. Now, we aim to take the next step.
