that supports all people in finding new life in Christ. Here at Itawamba Christian Church, we have a simple hope: to see people come to know Jesus Christ and grow in their Christian faith.
One of the blessings of being Minister at the Itawamba Christian Church is the daily joy I experience as I enter the building where we meet to Worship, Study and Fellowship.
