  Hello COM Family,
COM members need some helping hands.
Situation - Roofing on member’s house is not getting done because members (Roger & Nellie Jeffries) always helping others, thus neglecting the roof over their own heads (Roger! Roger! What are you thinking)?
Task - Prepare current roof for metal roof; metal is already on site (good job Roger!); install metal roof. Sounds easy, maybe?
Location- Roger & Nellie Jeffries Home, South of Hallsville MO.
Resolution- Getting this roof on in spite of Roger’s reluctance to ask for assistance.
Anyone that could help please contact:
Jamie Jeffries (Roger & Nellie’s son)

 Mt. Vernon, Mo. There was a new facility built in Mt Vernon this past year by the name of Living Water Church.  I understand it's a small congregation with a 30x60 building.  A volunteer group put the up structure and got it closed in.  They are now ready for drywall.  There's a small group of men from Texas coming March 9-13 to begin drywall process.  They are asking for any help that MO volunteers might be able to offer.  Volunteers will be staying at "a remote place in the woods called The Hill" (Baptist Hill).  I'll be the contact person at this time.  The Texas group will be the lead group.  I worked with them on the Timber Ridge church at Marshfield a few years ago

 Alaska Request for Campers-on-Mission, Summer 2020 PlantLife Alaska, an outreach and care ministry sponsored by CrossCountry Church, Wasilla, Alaska (in cooperation with the mission of Hatcher Pass Baptist Association – Mat-Su Valley, Alaska) is seeking summer RV camping volunteers to come and assist with the PlantLife Alaska Mission ‘to encourage church development, church planting and build relationships with unchurched Alaskans.’ These summer Campers-on-Mission volunteers may come for 4 to 12 weeks and will raise or provide their own support. Several of the churches in the Mat- Su Valley have full or partial RV hookups. Campers will have plenty of time for optional ministries, sightseeing, fishing and personally building relationships with Alaskans.  We are listing three tasks, but we would consider others.  Let’s talk! Call if you need more information about any COM tasks that you could offer in the Mat-Su Valley, 40 miles north of Anchorage.  We have been hosting COM efforts for over 10 years! 


First, we depend on COM volunteers to do much of the onsite summer ministry mobilization and coordination for and with our incoming volunteer mission teams, sometimes teenagers, sometimes adults or a combined group of both. The coordination tasks will require flexibility, good communication, missions ministry coaching and basic planning skills.  Consider enlisting a mission team from your church and then help them make it a great week in Alaska.


Second, some volunteers are needed to guide or assist with summer outreach activities such as Evangelistic Block Parties, Outreach Yard Sales, “Beginnings” – launching new Bible Studies, neighborhood VBS / Bible Clubs, public Park Parties with set up and take down (some of these Park Parties will require some lifting). 


Third, others have assisted with Alaska Baptist Convention Disaster Relief responses and Disaster Relief preparation and maintenance.  A yellow DR hat is helpful but not required. This Disaster Relief ministry has included some light building construction and rebuild in the past.


All volunteers will need to submit an application that includes a strong recommendation from their pastor.  Call or email Gary for more information:  Gary Bearce, Missions Pastor at CrossCountry Church, – 907 982-0133

Summer 2020
 We will again be holding a mini rally at Shelbina, Mo for First Baptist Church to get their  sanctuary finished this summer.  It will be held all summer long so anyone can come one week at a time to all summer. We will begin on May 26 through the first of September.  There are only 8 hookups so you will need to call and reserve a spot for the time you are coming.  We will have a sign up sheet at the rally.
We would like to THANK Roger Marshall and his winter crew that went up in January and will be going back in February to hang the sheetrock in the foyer and upstairs class room to assure that we get this project completed this summer. 
 Any question please call Jim Rawlings at
573-406-3809 OR call Mark Harpham at

Dear Campers on Mission,

    We were given information about your team and the possibility of volunteers helping us with our new church building in Jefferson City.  Freshwater Church is about 6 years old.  We started in a home and quickly outgrew that phase, so we have been renting space until now.  We're excited about having our own building.  During this early construction phase we're meeting at Southridge Baptist Church in Jefferson City. 

    We're looking for volunteers to help with the interior of the building (framing and sheet rock).  We expect that work to begin sometime in December and continue on through the winter.  We're prepared to help with meals and housing. 

    If you have any interest in helping with this project, please contact us through

Thank you!

Campers on Mission,

    My name is Pastor Bruce. I pastor Living Water, Mt. Vernon, MO. We are a small church in the process of building our own church building. We presently meet in the Senior Center of Mt. Vernon. Yes, we are close to Baptist Hill..
    Currently we have our building framed and boxed in. An area contractor will put on our metal roof. Not sure about the metal siding. He didn't say yes or no.
    We have much to do on the inside. That is why I am contacting you. I have a good electrical man in my church, but he has had a recent health decline, so that is my first need. I will just list everything and you can get an idea of our needs, and maybe you will have some resources.

Electrical (lines) - throughout the building.
Insulation - think we can do this
Sheetrock - group called Builders for Christ is coming in March to do this. Not sure if they can tape and texture yet.
Install hanging ceilings - 8 ft high 
Install plumbing for restrooms/kitchen - stools, urinal, sinks

Our building is 40X80 with 12 foot walls. Half is open with high ceiling. The other half will have the 8 foot ceilings.
It is difficult to get contractors and their cost is really beyond our budget. So any help would be very much appreciated.

If you need any information about the church I can provide it. Ken Hawkins our DOM can provide information too.

Our building is presently framed and boxed in; was done by Volunteer Christian Builders in late October.
They did a great job. Of course winter in setting in now. If we can get electrical and insulation in, we can have heat/a.c. put in.

I can send you a text with pictures of building if you are interested.
Thanks for reading this long announcement and I hope to hear from you.

Ambassador for Christ,      
Bro. Bruce Rinker

 I am the lead pastor of True Life Community Church and we are a 2 year old church. We have been mobile for the last 2 years and recently God opened the doors for us to lease our own space. We have prayed that God would answer our Luke 10:2 prayers to send laborers for the harvest to help us buildout our new space. We are requesting that Campers on Mission would send us a construction team for 1-3 weeks (or whatever the Lord puts on your heart) to help with demo, minimal wall construction, painting, flooring, build a small stage, plumbing, and electrical. The timeframe is very open and we are praying that a team can come as soon as they are available. We would be grateful for any help your missional team can provide. The church address is 3505 New Town Blvd St. Charles, MO 63301. Although we don’t have a space for RVs onsite, I will work with a local RV Park to house as many campers as want to come and I will make sure it doesn’t cost your group a dime to stay there. The RV site I will work with is the 370 Lakeside Park just 3 miles down the road, it is very nice. Our website and Facebook is in my signature block. God bless you and thank you for your consideration.

 As a follow up to my previous email. The architect believes that the plans and permits will be ready the first of November. However, between now and then we have walls to be removed, lots of painting, sound proofing, etc that can be done without a permit.

Lewistown, MO  May 2017

 We had a great week putting in a new kitchen for the congregation at Lewistown. The Dehners, Dehners, Grubbs, Parrishes, Gillespies, Jackie Hamlin, Jim Rawlings and the Janes were there. The women made 18 lap robes, 5 toss pillows, 10 pillowcases and a kitchen curtain. On Fridaywe delivered the lap robes to the CARE Center in Lewistown and gave one to each of the residents who were members of the church. The daily devotions and fellowship were wonderful. Thanks to all who helped. This was Donna and Kenny's home church.
