Building relationships has been Winters’s life

Neddie Winters understands the power of conversations and their ability to change hearts and minds. The 1968 graduate of Rosa Fort High School and current president of Mission Mississippi has held and facilitated many discussions on race between African Americans and Caucasians throughout the state of Mississippi in an effort to foster racial reconciliation statewide.

“People are finding out that they’ve got more in common than they have not in common,” Winters said.  “We spend a lot of time helping people build relationships.”

Mission Mississippi is a nonprofit organization set up to encourage and demonstrate grace in the Body of Christ across racial lines, so that communities throughout Mississippi can see practical evidence of the Gospel message.  Winters has been affiliated with the organization since its start 22 years ago and has served as president since 2009.

Why not try Small Business Saturday right in your own home town? No traffic, plenty of merchandise in stock, and friendly service to boot.

“We’re encouraging everybody to shop with local businesses because it has such an impact,” Tunica Chamber of Commerce CEO Lyn Arnold said of her organization’s efforts to promote Tunica businesses.

This Saturday’s emphasis is part of a larger “I Shop Tunica” campaign launched alongside the holiday season’s $1,000 Shopping Spree.
