“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden." Matthew 5:14
Hilltop Church Jackson, an extension of CareCenter Ministries Mississippi, is a missions-based, spirit-filled church positioned in the heart of Jackson. Our desire is to advance the Kingdom of God in our city and beyond, equip the saints for the work of the ministry, and minister to the brokenhearted.
Pastor Daniel and Lacey Awabdy both grew up in the Jackson area and have a passion for advancing the gospel and making disciples. In 2014, bound to a life of addiction and crime for 22 years, Daniel found himself in a cell, broken and facing life in prison. It was during that time that Daniel heard God speak to him and tell him that he loved him and, in that moment, he truly understood the gospel for the first time. God made a way for Daniel to be released from prison to go to CareCenter Ministries in Dallas where his life was transformed by the power of the gospel and a burden for his hometown was birthed. In 2019, Daniel returned to Jackson to launch CareCenter Ministries Mississippi. Daniel and Lacey are the proud parents of five children: Kaniela, Tatiana, Abraham, Malea, and Totry.
