The Mission, a 501(c)3 ministry, is a non-denominational Christian community outreach located in West Point, MS. We desire to partner with our local churches, organizations and the community to work towards God’s vision for the ministry to bridge the socio-economic and racial gaps in our city to Jesus Christ. The vision is to create a Christ centered outreach to empower individuals to use their spiritual gifts and talents for God’s glory. We believe this will allow them to walk in freedom and victory, breaking generational strongholds, while helping them reach their God given potential. Our goal is to offer a hand up, not a hand out; sharing Jesus and the life skills necessary to feed them not just for today, but for eternity.
Pastor R.C. “Dickie” Bryan has been in ministry for over 40 years. After leaving his family owned business, Bryan Foods, he found true hope and freedom after giving his life to Jesus Christ and went into full time ministry.

After attending Mid-South Bible College in Memphis, TN, he invested 20 years as pastor at Hebron Baptist Church and started Hebron Christian School in Pheba, MS. Dickie’s passion for reaching the lost lead him to travel full time sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ at churches and prisons across the U.S. He served as past president of Coaches for Christ, Campers on Mission and is now Senior Pastor of Fellowship Baptist Church. Dickie is active in Celebrate Recovery, Hellfighters Motorcycle Ministries and Campers on Mission. Dickie is married to Mary Todd Bryan.
