The Far Eastside is a flourishing, viable, unified, and empowered community.

Our Mission & Vision

Our vision and mission is to help connect people to faith

The mission of Mt. Carmel Church is to demonstrate our love for God and neighbor by spiritually, financially, educationally, politically, and socially empowering our members and community.  In 2017 the Mt. Carmel Community Development Corporation (MCCDC), a separate 501(c)(3), “supporting organization,” was birthed to carry out the community initiatives of the church.   The MCCDC oversees a three pronged-initiative, known as the E3 Project, that addresses three basic needs in our community:

EATS, to provide food access to a food desert;

ECONOMICS, to provide financial security to a community plagued with predatory lending; and

EDUCATION, to provide educational opportunity where an increased amount of schools have closed in our neighborhoods.

Mission & Purpose

Mt. Carmel Community Development Corporation (MCCDC) leads, advocates, and champions initiatives to meet the spiritual and physical needs of those who live, work, and worship on the Far Eastside of Indianapolis.

Many staff and volunteer hours have been invested in these three initiatives to develop frameworks, structure, partnerships, and connect resources to develop these projects. We are excited about the progress that we have made and look forward to 2020’s goals and advancements. 

For more information on how you can support the initiatives and get updates on each initiative’s progress, please contact, Tanya Johnson at, 317-890-2740 ext. 18. Also, each initiative has its own page to learn about its specific progress. See the list under the Community Initiatives tab.
