About Mississippi Methodist Senior Services PDF Print E-mail

Founded in the early 1960s as a charitable, not-for-profit organization, Mississippi Methodist Senior Services is a United Methodist related institution that provides service ministry to the elderly served by the Mississippi Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.

Mission and Values

Respect for aging is central to the Bible’s greatest teaching. Concern for elders is found in the most important episodes of both the Old and New Testaments. This is the theological base on which Mississippi Methodist Senior Services, Inc. has built its ministry.

In accordance with Christian teaching and in the tradition of Methodism, Senior Services recognizes the contribution elders have made to family and community. We hold the wisdom and experience of elders in high esteem and do not forsake them in the time of older age.

The mission of MMSS is to serve older adults in the Spirit of Christian love.

The vision of MMSS is to be the preeminent provider and innovator of affordable housing and services to elders.

The core values of MMSS are:

  • Servant Ministry
  • the Dignity of Elders
  • Compassion for Those We Serve
  • Operational Excellence
