Mission and Vision


The creation of an Early Learning Center at Mission First has been a vision since the beginning years of Mission First’s existence in 1999. This vision became reality in August 2018 when the Mission First Early Learning Center opened its doors for the first day of their K-3 program. Since 2018, the Mission First Early Learning Center has expanded with an additional classroom each year for K3-K5 students. 

The desire of Mission First ELC is to meet the educational and spiritual needs of young students in the Jackson community, to prepare them to be leaders throughout the State of Mississippi. As a school, we believe that attending to the educational, social, and spiritual needs of young children in our state is the most sound strategy for securing Mississippi’s future.


The Mission First Early Learning Center exists to instruct and nurture early learners so that they are equipped to fulfill their purpose as disciples of Jesus.



To see early learners become Christ-Centered, young leaders who allow the truth of the Gospel to guide the course of their life
