WITH HEARTFUL GRATITUDE...

Mount Nebo Bible Baptist Church is associated with the Premier Foundation because of their history helping others to fulfill their vision and goals. Our experience of devastation due to Hurricane Katrina is an example of their commitment to their mission. We partnered with them because they caught our vision and desire to restore our sacred place and outreach services in our community. Our relationship, though financially based, is spiritual in nature because of their Christ-like compassion: this compassionate attitude is why we believe our quest to rebuild our place of worship will be fulfilled. We are supported emotionally as well as through the Foundation, and because of their godly principles in fundraising we believe they will aid us as we move forward in our efforts to rebuild. This is not just a business relationship, but a personal one that has blossomed over the years.

The congregation has embraced the Foundation’s ideals of aiding and supporting our rebuilding efforts to return to being the heartbeat of this community where God planted us. Our plan is to reconstitute programs for adults and youth of our area including tutoring/mentoring, job search/completing applications, free tax assistance, self-help/self-worth/self-esteem building classes, athletics, computer center, games, assistance for the homeless (feed and clothe) and much more. Our heartfelt gratitude to you.

- Rev. Charles Duplessis, Pastor, Mount Nebo Bible Baptist Church
