Join Memorial Drive Ministries in Serving your Neighbors

Memorial Drive Ministries (MDM) is located in Clarkston, GA, a city described as the “Ellis Island of the South.” Immigrants make up roughly 32% of the city’s population, representing 40 nationalities and 60 languages, within 1.4 square miles.

MDM is serving this community by providing safe, collaborative, and welcoming space for many vibrant ministries:

  • Nurturing 6 worshipping communities speaking 6 different languages and serving over 200 worshipers every Sunday at an estimated cost of $52,000
  • “I hope that MDM will become the place that the churches in the Presbytery and beyond come together to invest their time, talent, and treasure in refugee and community ministry in Clarkston.”
  • Providing space for 7 unique non-profits serving over 315 members of this community in diverse ways at an estimated cost of $77,000
  • “Bringing partners together around a table which allows us to see the bigger picture, to network with one another, and to share resources…Without MDM, that doesn’t happen.”
  • Supporting various recreational activities including basketball, badminton, karate, and ultimate Frisbee, providing physical activities for over 190 children, youth, and adults at an estimated cost of $11,000
  • “MDM has had tremendous success this past year in communicating its mission, building community, improving the facilities, clarifying/solidifying arrangements on campus, and supporting ministries.”
  • Maintaining the campus with much needed capital improvements at an estimated cost of $30,000
  • “I’m a big believer that our space shapes our learning and conveys a message of welcome and care. Having a fully-functioning and nice place is a way to say we care about the people who come here!”

We need your help! 

To sustain this place of worship, service, and belonging, we need to raise $170,000 from contributors like you.
