Religion

Faith is a very important part of the Southern life, and DeSoto County is no different. As the county has grown in recent years, we’re happy to note that our churches have grown as well. A number of congregations have memberships of several thousand, yet we still have many small, well-attended country churches.

The growth is reflected by more than $20 million in improvements or additions at DeSoto County churches. But more importantly, DeSoto County is proud of the way its church members contribute to the community’s overall well-being.

Many church members of all denominations are active in interfaith charity efforts, such as Habitat for Humanity and many other volunteer programs that make our community strong.

We don’t think it’s any accident that DeSoto County is home to more than 130 churches and houses of worship representing more than 20 denominations.
