Growing Your District Into 2019

While we have been blessed with spiritual and numerical growth in the past, it is vital that we remain focused on our vision for the future. These are ten areas we are excited about as we are “Building Healthy Churches Together”. You will see some of these things fleshed out in the year to come as we work to not only plant new churches but invest in helping existing churches to grow in depth and breath.

  • Building Leadership Pipelines
  • Multiplying among all people
  • Deepening our engagement with grassroots leaders
  • Investing in Disciples who in turn make disciples
  • Discovering new partnership opportunity with local churches
  • Empowering and releasing a new generation of church planters
  • Developing a deeper and consistent prayer support network

Join us as partners in 2019 as we move ahead with on our mission with the vision that God has placed in us. You can have role in partnering with us. Simply contact any staff member and we will prayerfully discuss how you can join us on our mission. We are praying for a fruitful year ahead.

Welcome to the Central District

To put it simply, we are your resource to reach the “Samaria” that often a local church can’t effectively reach. The church is charged to be on mission to reach “Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the uttermost parts of the world”. A local church is well placed to reach it’s city and it’s county. It may also partner with a mission organization to reach parts of the world that are far away. However, geographically considered, Samaria is like the rest of the state or a region of the country itself. In the EFCA we are the Central District that covers Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas and SE South Dakota. This is impossible for any local church to reach effectively. We are working as one organization with our 135 churches on mission to reach every part of our Samaria. We are excited to serve every local church as we seek to present the gospel of Christ to our district. Join us. These pages our your resources to help not only you as a church or pastor but share the story of how we are on mission for you.
