Gulf States Mennonite Conference

Jubilee is a part of Gulf States Mennonite Conference, which is a conference within Mennonite Church USA. Originally known as the Gulf States Mennonite Fellowship, the conference was formed on 5 May 1979 in a meeting at the Gulfhaven Mennonite Church, in Gulfport, Mississippi. This new regional conference of the Mennonite Church  brought together churches from various former affiliations, which included the Conservative Mennonite Conference, Ohio Conference, South Central Conference, and the General Conference Mennonite Church. Included were Native American (Indian), Afro-American, Cajun, and Hispanic Mennonites. Early settlements of Mennonites (1920s) were made in Noxubee and Harrison Counties, Mississippi; St. Charles Parish, Lousiana; and Atmore, Alabama. Although the primary goal of these settlements was inexpensive farm land, in the late 1980s the resulting congregations increasingly became centers for mission outreach.

The conference minister is Jeff Landis.

The congregations that make up Gulf States Mennonite Conference include the following:

Congregation City State
Faith Community Church El Dorado Arkansas
Iglesia Amor Viviente Metairie Louisiana
Jubilee Mennonite Church Meridian Mississippi
Mashulaville Mennonite Fellowship Macon Mississippi
Open Door Mennonite Church Jackson Mississippi
