Amy Lancaster, We Will Go
David and Amy Lancaster are the Founders of We Will Go in downtown Jackson. They have a desire for all to come to know the Lord Jesus as their Savior. They have been living in Jackson since 2005 and have 3 kids. They are blessed to serve at We Will Go!
In 2000, David and Amy Lancaster wanted more out of their Christian lives. They saw there was great need in Jackson, MS. Their heart to see a better Jackson led them to take action and say, “We will go.” They began to partner with others with the heart to be a neighbor to those in the community. We Will Go has continued to grow over the years with the help of volunteers, donors, churches, and partners. We Will Go now focuses efforts towards Education, Essential Food, and Engagement. This looks like distributing groceries to low-income families in our community, offering after school care with a focus on literacy, and providing all day summer learning for students in need. All programs are centered around evangelism and sharing the love of
Christ with our neighbors. It’s amazing to see how one family’s initial actions have opened the door for so many people to come together to spark change in Jackson.
I met Amy while in Mozambique; she was teaching at Harvest School and I had brought a team from Virginia. It was a season of war in the northern province, and we were the last ones in. Our hearts burn in prayer for that nation. Since then, we’ve hosted Amy several times for
conferences in Charlottesville and taken teams multiple years to serve at Camp Hope in Jackson MS.
