Easter Weekend Services


A Church Where You Belong

We are blown away by how God continues to strengthen and build the church and use us as a body of believers to bring the good news of the Gospel to people who need Jesus! We have campuses across the Southwest Missouri area located in Joplin, Ozark, and Springfield, MO; uniting around the calling to be Christ’s hands extended by loving with extravagance, serving with genuineness, and welcoming people home.

Lead Pastors John & Debbie Lindell

Soul Set Free

A Book by John Lindell

The gospel is even better than what we believe. Soul Set Free will help you discover the true meaning behind God’s grace and learn to no longer view the gospel as anything less than a truth that sets your soul free. It will change your life forever.
