Churches serving the western half of Missouri and the northwest corner of Arkansas.
The Western Association includes the region from Highway 63 in the central part of Missouri all the way to the Kansas state line, bounded on the north by Iowa and stretching south into northwest Arkansas. Churches in this area are grouped into four clusters: Kansas City/St. Joseph, Lafayette, Central, and Ozark, providing opportunities to cooperate in worship celebrations and mission. As an interesting mix of people “united in our diversity,” many congregations celebrate a German Evangelical or Reformed tradition while others trace their roots to the Congregational Christian tradition. The Association also includes two Marshallese congregations in northwest Arkansas.
