Beginning in the 1960’s, under the name of Voice of Calvary Ministries, (VOC), TMM was started by John M. Perkins and others who were concerned about the appalling conditions faced by the poor black community in this rural Mississippi area. Seeking to show God’s love in action, their vision grew into a ministry known for providing progressive and aggressive local leadership within the community to address problems of poor housing, segregated and unequal education, lack of employment opportunities, and lack of capital-trapping institutions within the black community. In recognition of a job well done, former President George Bush presented TMM with the number 541 Daily Point of Light Award in 1991, one of only six recipients in Mississippi.
