As director for the Church Growth and Education Department, my goal is to work alongside all churches and 1,400+ ministers here in the Southern Missouri District. We want to help you as you plan to reach your community for Christ by:
- Providing resources for churches in the areas of Sunday School/Small Groups, discipleship, senior adults, singles, and children
- Facilitating staff/worker training
- Searching for new and fresh ministry ideas to help our churches—whether big or small
- Encouraging local congregations through the ministry of the Word by invitations to speak in a church service
- Offering prayer support and encouragement to our pastors and ministers
This office is here to serve you in any way we can. Blessing be upon you, your family, and your ministry.
— Jim Calvin
