Missions Conference was held April 29, 2017.

Daniel & Elisa Gilbert, Pastors of Covenant Faith Church (KCAC), were our speakers this year. Our theme was Neighbors to Nations, Telling Your Story. There were about 20 people attending the all day conference.

Great Commission Coffee House became more popular in 2017 with Pete Hillman and Joe Bollinger creating phenomenal culinary creations for us each week. Our average per week jumped about $15!

We saw more given to Missions in our offerings and great success in our fund-raisers surpassing our goal of raising $7,500.00.

We extended our support further than ever in 2017! Every time we reached out in faith we were met and blessed mightily by God.


There were six members on our short-term missions trip to Italy where we connected with ministry partners of Alisa (European Faith Ministries) in Rome, Milan, Biella, and Tourino. Prayer walks, prayer meetings, encouragement of ministry partners visiting ministries as well as connecting with new ministries and re-connecting with ministries that we already know. Our connection to Italy is strong and God has a plan for us as we walk forward with our Italian Brothers and Sisters together.
