The Disciples of Christ Ministries

The Disciples of Christ Ministries, 1001 Grand Ave., Jackson, MS was ablaze Monday afternoon (June 29, 2015) due to human error, not human terror as six other black churches across the south. An electrical fire engulfed the church before firefighters could get it under control. Pastor Charles E. McCaskill was at the scene when it happened. “A man was working on the building and some wires touched and set off the fire,” he said while down on his knees on the lawn opposite the church praying that the firefighters could salvage the structure.
