Mardi Gras Mission, 2018

BMA Missions is pleased to join the ministry of Campground Baptist Church in Gulfport, Mississippi to share the love of Jesus on the Mississippi Gulf Coast! Each year thousands of people attend the annual Mississippi Gulf Coast Mardi Gras Parades. The 2018 parades will be held February 9-11. Campground Baptist has leveraged this opportunity to serve and share Christ with the people who attend the parades. Pastor Bryan Atwood has invited the people of the BMA to join them in this ministry. This is an excellent opportunity for churches to experience a short-term missions trip that is close in location, inexpensive and very effective.

All BMA churches are invited to join in this effort. However, because of limited space, the first 150 people who apply will be eligible to participate.

Training and lodging will be at:
Campground Baptist Church
20577 Highway 53
Gulfport, MS 39503


Each participant must attend training on the Friday night before the Saturday parade. The session will begin at 7:00 pm.

Cost per participant is $100.00. This will provide your lodging, training, Friday evening meal, Saturday morning breakfast, Lunch at the parade, Bibles to hand out at the parade, a Mardi Gras Missions T-Shirt and other ministry outreach items during the parade.

Campground will provide lodging. Be prepared to bring everything you’d need to go to camp including bedding.

A Mardi Gras Missions T-Shirt is required for each participant.

Each participant must be 15 years of age. Because of the sleeping arrangements and the nature of the ministry, no children are allowed on this trip.
