Mt. Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church was blessed with Pastor Josh Jackson in June 2013.

Bro. Josh was born in Pensacola, Florida on October 28, 1981.  He was raised in Minden, Louisianna.  He attended college in Arkansas where he met his wife Melinda.  Brother Josh was called to the ministry in 2005 and attended the Louisiana Missionary Baptist Institute & Seminary where he graduated with a Masters Degree in Theology.  Throughout his time in the ministry, he has pastored churches in Louisiana and Arkansas.  His passion and conviction is to see lost souls come to know Christ as their personal savior and to help families grow closer to not just one another but also to God.  Brother Josh's hobbies include fishing, playing golf, anything that involves the Arkansas Razorbacks, and spending time with his family.  He and his wife Melinda have three children, Jayden, Abbigail and Madelyne.

        2018 Theme

    There is now a new theme for 2018.We will soon have new braclets with the 2018 theme. 

    Matthew 5:13-14

    "Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid."


    Passion Groups

    This month, we will embark on a new journey that will encourage us to have a deeper and greater passion for Christ and for our neighbor. It is my prayer for this to be a time of spiritual growth and encouragement. The teaching will relevant. The environment will be laid back. And the fellowship will be sweet. I am hoping that discussion will break out each week as we lift one another up and prepare ourselves for the upcoming week. These groups will meet every 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month at 6pm and will be grouped according to age. The first groups will be our teens. Bro. Rick will head this group up (13-20) I will head up the middle group (21-49). Bro James will be in charge of those. 50+. For our first meeting, we will meet briefly at the church to make sure everyone knows what is happening and then we will break out into our groups.
