Columbia First

Our mission of making disciples for the glory of God begins with Columbia first.

We provide volunteer support and supplies to schools throughout our county. We have formal partnerships with these schools. Contact the pastor connected with each school to learn how to get involved, or contact our Student Pastor Ryan McMichael, who oversees this outreach:
Brown Elementary School: Pastor Dathan Hale
Mt. Pleasant Middle School: Pastor Deron Henry
Riverside Elementary School: Pastor Joey Scruggs
Culleoka Unit School, Whitthorne Middle School, Central High School: Pastor Ryan McMichael
Volunteer to help the local Boys & Girls Club with a variety of things with the goal of building relationships with workers, kids, and families that will hopefully lead to opportunities to share the Gospel. Contact: Pastor Dathan Hale
This team assists people in the community who need help with light construction work on their homes. We strive to build relationships that will lead to opportunities to share the Gospel. Contact: Larry Wright

We periodically go to laundromats and pay for laundry service for people there. Then, we sit with them and have conversations to build relationships that will lead to opportunities to share the Gospel. Contact: Pastor Rick Blevins
Provide food and gifts to local fire departments, police departments, and paramedics to build relationships with first responders and their families that will lead to opportunities to share the Gospel and plug them into church. Contact: Pastor Joey Scruggs


Local Ministry Partners

We provide monthly support to these local ministries. They are always looking for volunteers, so reach out to them directly to learn how to help.

Church Planting Partners

We have partnerships with the following church planters (pastors who are beginning new churches). Pray for our partnerships as we work together to expand God's Kingdom.

Due to continued travel restrictions, we have not been able to schedule mission trips yet for 2021 with our mission partners.

We will promote opportunities to the church family as soon as they become available.

You Can Give to Missions Throughout the Year

We've paid off more than $1M in medical debt.

In May of 2020, we contributed $15,000 to wipe out $1.5 million in medical debt through our RIP Medical Debt campaign. We were able to help abolish medical debt for 1,021 families across Middle Tennessee!
