The Mississippi Christian Missionary Convention (MCMC) was organized in 1887 under the umbrella of the National Christian Missionary Convention (NCMC), now the National Convocation of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), designed for the organization and gathering of African American Disciples of Christ Congregations in Mississippi. They exist to nurture, provide opportunities for fellowship, and context to understand the life and call for African American Congregations in urban and rural Mississippi. The MCMC Convention meets annually during the summer months for worship, fellowship, training, and instruction.
