Church Planting in Missouri/Arkansas
Envision the Opportunities in Missouri and Arkansas
Missouri and Arkansas are home to 8.6 million residents living over 121,00 square miles of fertile plains, dense forest, the stately Ozark mountains and along the North American’s continent’s two great rivers—the Mississippi and the Missouri. Cities and towns large and small dot the landscape. Opportunities to reach the millions abound.
