And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

God’s instrument to reach every tribe, tongue, people, and nation is the church. The great commission is a call to make much of the name of Jesus both near and far. Therefore, it is our prayer and desire to take him to “our neighbors and to the nations.”

God has gifted each of us uniquely and called all of us to play a part in this great mission through praying, giving, and going where the gospel is needed.

Pray.      Give.      Go.

After accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we need to find out what God wants us to do. One way is to go on a short-term mission trip. Many have found how to use their God-given talents for His kingdom this way. Our church has a number of short-term mission trips each year. We send teams to West Africa where we partner with local believers to spread the gospel and disciple new believers.

Another mission trip you could participate in is with Phil and Laura Dooley, who are church planters with GospelPlantingPartners in Montana. They partner with new and struggling churches to be healthy and reach their neighbors with the gospel. Currently, they are helping a 5-year-old church plant in Livingston, Montana reach their neighbors 85 miles away in Whitehall, Montana. Their address is PO Box 286, Whitehall, MT 59759, their phone numbers are Phil 573-356-8086 and Laura 573-999-0123, and their email is You can support them financially at GospelPlantingPartners and click on the Give tab.

Disaster Relief

A number of our people help with Missouri Baptist Relief. Contact Rod Everage or Missouri Baptist Disaster Relief to find out how to get training and participate.

Since 1986, MBC Disaster Relief has grown from a handful of volunteers to a mighty force of responders.  We have answered the call to countless disasters in Missouri and around the world.  Missouri is known as one of the premier SBC DR states.

Missouri offers about 2000 trained and credentialed volunteers.  These volunteers are equipped and ready to answer the call of any type of disaster.  We work with 42 SBC state conventions to advance the gospel in the middle of crises – whenever, wherever, however.

MBC Disaster relief hosts four training sessions each year in our state.  Because of national agreements, each MBC DR volunteer must have a background check and be trained.  Each training event is scheduled on a Friday evening and Saturday.  You can get involved in the following areas:

  • Feeding (Mass Care)
  • Chainsaw Recovery
  • Flood Recovery (Mud Out)
  • Shower/Laundry
  • Chaplaincy
  • Child Care
  • Communication
  • IMT (Incident Management Team)
