About Gulf Coast Blessings
Gulf Coast Blessings began in 2007, with a few girlfriends gathering around a dining room table once a week to learn more about Christ. As we continued to study the Word together, we recognized that God was calling us to “live” what we were learning in Bible study. We were blessed with opportunities to be His hands and feet in our community and serve those in need -- whether supplies for women’s resource centers, Bibles for the homeless, or help for a family in crisis -- and our original Bible study group grew into a women’s ministry, Gulf Coast Blessings.
Today, we are a group of 200+ women, ranging in age from 25 to 85, representing many Christian denominations from across the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We are career women, homemakers, students, moms, single and married women. Most importantly, we are followers of Jesus Christ, led by the Holy Spirit to learn all that we can about Him, grow in our relationship with Him, and share His love with the community around us as we “Seek, Study, and Serve.”

In 2011, Gulf Coast Blessings hosted the first ever, planned-to-be-annual Women's Conference Event. Lysa Terkeurst, who had spoken to our hearts throughout the year in video Bible Studies, came to give us an exhortation - a message of inspiration. And inspire she did! Others joined us, regardless of denominational affiliation, for this historic occasion, held at First Baptist Church of Gulfport, who generously donated the use of their facility. When it was all said and done, there was nary a dry eye in the place - and the buzz was unstoppable. Joy and excitement filled the air, as all 450 attendees realized the amazing gift of togetherness that had been given unto them. Our second annual Blessings Conference brought Angela Thomas to town ~ and we were encouraged yet again! As you can see below, everyone had a fabulous time!
We were so overwhelmed by the response of the people; so energized to work shoulder to shoulder with our sisters in Christ; lifted by Love as we got to know one another in fresh ways; that we are looking forward to next year's event with great anticipation . . . already! The only question is ~ will you be joining us? :)
God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him.
