Back Bay Mission

Back Bay Mission United Church of Christ LogoBack Bay Mission is a community ministry of the United Church of Christ. Located in Biloxi, Mississippi, it serves the Mississippi Gulf Coast and wider church community by faithful witness for social justice and compassionate service to the poor and marginalized.

First Congregational has a long history of active participation in the mission. We began taking mission trips to Biloxi on a consistent basis in 1992, and in 2004 we were awarded the Congregational Stewardship Award from The Council for Health and Human Service Ministries for our outstanding support of the mission. We at First Congregational give ongoing support and make an annual mission trip to Biloxi. We also host a shrimp boil each year to raise funds and awareness. In December 2015 our guest speaker for the shrimp boil will be Benji Benzschawel, Back Bay Mission's Assistant to the Associate for Housing. Benji is a former member of our congregation who became part of Back Bay Mission’s staff in 2014.
