Mission Projects

Volunteers are an integral part of this ministry. Indeed, it is because of the generosity of thousands of volunteers throughout our history that The Baptist Children's Village has been able to provide quality care for countless children. Below you will find a list of volunteer opportunities at each campus.  To contact someone about these projects, click the campus name to send an email.  You may also contact Chrystelle Thames, Director of Communication at 601-952-2422.
