DeSoto Grace began as a compassion ministry of Life Fellowship Church. The Lead Pastor, Patrick Conrad, was confronted with the poverty that exists in DeSoto County and the fact that many families struggle. In an effort to connect with families stricken by poverty, Life Fellowship Church hosted multiple DeSoto Grace events between August 2012 through December 2013. After these events it was determined that people living in poverty would benefit greatly from having more permanent and consistent assistance through programs in their local communities. On May 1, 2014 DeSoto Grace was incorporated in the state of Mississippi.
DeSoto Grace partners with local resources and programs in order to reach into the community through large events that occur periodically throughout the year and by maintaining a consistent presence in the community through the DeSoto Grace Education and Activities Program.
