  • Weekly Email Announcements

    Every Monday, Preston, sends out an announcement email to a whole mass of people.  If you would like to know what is going on in the Association and important dates to know, send him an email at DOM of GCBA, and he will add you to the email list.

  • Monthly Pastors Fellowship

    The first Tuesday of each month all pastors are encouraged to meet together for lunch at 12pm.  This is a time of fellowship with other brothers who are also in the trenches of ministry.  It is not designed as a program or with much structure.   The location changes each month and is decided by the pastors in attendance at the previous months gathering.

    Carpool is always the best for fellowship and cost effectiveness.

    Empowering Her Ministries

    Did you know that Human Trafficking is growing in Mid-Missouri? This horrendous crime is stealing our daughters and our sons. Unfortunately many people do not realize the depth of this problem in our community, which is why I’m contacting you. Union Hill Baptist Church is serving as a catalyst in forming Empowering Her Ministries. 

                Empowering Her Ministries will be a team of Jesus loving abolitionists who work to reach exploited women in Mid-Missouri through prayer, intervention, friendship and the giving of resources. As Christians we are called to take the light into the darkness, and that is exactly what we plan to do. We go in confidence that God has not only called us, but has given us the authority to storm into the darkness of exploitation and guide victims out into His glorious light. 

                To begin forming our team, Union Hill Baptist Church is hosting an Educational Night where we will be watching a documentary created by our fellow abolitionists at Exodus Cry. This documentary is called “Nefarious: Merchant of Souls.” We invite you to come, learn and partner with us. Due to the raw content of the documentary we are asking that only adults attend. Students between the ages of 14-18 may be present with permission of their parent/guardian. Child care will be provided.

    Documentary: Nefarious: Merchant of Souls

    When: Sunday March 4th, 2018 @ 5:00 PM

    Location: Union Hill Baptist Church

    460 South Summit Drive

       Holts Summit, MO 65043

     If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the information listed below.

    Because of Jesus,

  • Pastors COnference

    The West Central Baptist Association (Warrensburg) will be hosting their annual pastors conference on Thursday, March 22nd.  The guest speaker will be Dr. Jeff Iorg President of Gateway Seminary.  You can find more information in the flyer attached.  A group of our pastors have gone the last few years to this conference and it is well worth the time.

Colossians 3:12 - “Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience,”
