Taste of West Jackson Food Competition {Ministry}

Taste of West Jackson Food Competition {Ministry}

Here are two more of our restaurant spotlights filmed as promotional content for the 2nd annual Taste of West Jackson! E & L Barbeque is one of the most popular places to eat in this neighborhood and has been owned by the same family for nearly 30 years. La Reata is the only competitor in the event whose specialty is Mexican food. They are by far, in our opinion, the best place to get a burrito in Jackson. Last week we featured Famo, another competitor, on our blog - you can go back to check out the story of how he brought his dream from Chicago to Jackson. This Saturday people from all around the city will gather to sample tasty food and vote for their favorite West Jackson restaurant or caterer. Our church, Common Ground Covenant Church, is hosting this event in our neighborhood park. To us, it's not just a fun event to bring community members together; it's bigger than that. We hope that through the Taste of West Jackson, these small business owners will gain new customers and partners in the community, encourage everyone to shop local, and boost the economic growth of our community. This event is just one piece of a larger plan to help the development of West Jackson.

These event promo videos may seem completely different than our wedding videos, but we have one primary goal with everything that we shoot: to tell the story. Whether we are working with a wedding party or a business team, our mission is to authentically tell the story of each person we film. None of our films are rehearsed or forced, we capture everything as it unfolds and meticulously edit small pieces together until the story is born.

Taste of West Jackson Food Competition {Ministry}

We have recently enjoyed filming and interviewing several restaurant owners for an upcoming competition hosted by our church called the Taste of West Jackson. We've been wanting to branch out into doing some videos for businesses for a while now and it's been a fun process! This particular video was made for Chi-town Salads and Sandwiches. The story behind Famo's restaurant made for an exciting editing process! We're planning on doing several more videos for the other restaurants participating in the competition. You can check out the other films we've done thus far on the Common Ground Facebook page. We can't wait to share more of our work soon!

Common Ground Enterprises {Ministry} - Jackson, MS

Our church home, Common Ground Covenant Church, is located in west Jackson, Mississippi. We have recently been given the opportunity to create content and films for the media outreach ministry. We're excited to see where God leads us with this endeavor and to hopefully reach the city of Jackson and surrounding communities. One of our latest films began as an application video for an emerging leader grant with Wheat Ridge Ministries, but it recently gained attention on social media from community developers and church planters around the country with over 2.5 thousand views as of today.

The film primarily focuses on one of our newest ministries: Common Ground Enterprises. Through creating workforce development opportunities, we are working towards sustainable solutions to reduce poverty in our community. Watch the full film to learn more about each of our enterprises. We are excited to be a part of Common Ground and the work the Lord is doing in the community.

Here are some ways you can be involved in this ministry:

  • Pray for us - both personally and through your church.
  • If you are local to the Jackson area, contact us for more information on how you can hire Common Ground catering for your next event or wedding!
  • Support Common Ground through a one-time donation or monthly donation here: http://commongroundjxn.org/general-giving/ (any amount is greatly appreciated!)
  • Visit our church service to see for yourself how God is working! We meet at 531 W. Capitol St. in Jackson, MS on Sundays at 10:37 a.m. (after Luke 10:37). 

We'll continue to update the blog with our CGCC media!
