At MBC, we seek to be transformed by pursuing Christ. We seek to walk in humility, believing we each bring something uniquely valuable and needed to the Body,
Midland is located in West Texas, with a semi-arid climate on the edge of the Chihuahua desert. The local economy revolves around oil and gas, which often creates boom and bust cycles.
