Proposed Merger

In late January, the DOMs for Grand Crossings and Mid Missouri Baptist Associations had a meeting to discuss the possibility of the two associations merging together.  From this point we have met with our separate Leadership Teams, a joint Leadership Team meeting, Executive Boards and now also formed a Task Force.  The Annual Meetings for the two associations are in early September.  At these meetings, decisions will be made towards join the two together.  The documents and items below are for informational purposes.  We have strived to be above reproach on all matters and therefore are providing these documents as they are finished. If you should have any questions, please contact Preston Thompson, DOM for GCBA at

Survey for new Name

The survey results have been calculated and the overwhelming number 1 vote was for Heart of Missouri Baptist Association.  Looking forward, if we proceed, to serve together under this new name.

Answering some questions

The Task Force has created a couple of videos to help answer some of the questions that arose during our Town Hall Meetings.
