Small Town Pastors

We're about healthy leaders, healthy churches, and Gospel growth in small towns.


WMU’s unwavering focus is making disciples of Jesus who live on mission.

We carry out this mission by

North American Mission Board


The Church is God’s plan—you are God’s plan—to reach North America and the nations with the hope of the gospel, and the North American Mission Board is here to help.

International Mission Board

Let’s make Jesus known among the nations.

The greatest problem in the world is lostness. The only solution to this problem is the gospel. Together, Southern Baptists send IMB missionaries to be steadfastly present among people and places where Jesus is not named or known.

Together, we seek to take the gospel to every nation, all tribes and peoples and languages. We give ourselves to this mission every day.

You can help transform lives today. Will you join us?

Bible Training Center for Pastors

Bible Training Centre For Pastors

We seek to follow the biblical model for leadership development.

BTCP training uses a biblical, systematic, portable and comprehensive approach to providing the foundational equivalent of a good Bible college or seminary education. Our training consists of 520 hours of interactive classroom lecture and discussion under the supervision of a qualified teacher, taking about 2 years to complete. Our Mission is to extend comprehensive theological training to the world’s untrained pastors and church leaders.

Mission Dignity

Psalm 37:25 reads, “I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging for bread.” For more than 100 years, Mission:Dignity®, a ministry of GuideStone Financial Resources, has existed to see this promise fulfilled in the lives of God’s servants.


Mission:Dignity® exists to honor retirement-aged Southern Baptist pastors, workers, and widows struggling to meet basic needs through advocacy and financial assistance. We currently serve 98 individuals annually in Missouri, but with more than 1,750 churches in Missouri, we know there are more servants of the Lord we can serve.


To qualify for a Mission:Dignity financial grant, recipients must:


  • Be 65 years of age or older,
  • Have 10 or more years of paid Southern Baptist service,
  • Make less than $2,430 a month as a single person or $3,300 a month as a couple,
  • And have $45,000 or less in liquid assets


If you or someone you know meets these qualifications, please call us at 1-877-888-9409 to ask us about applying for a Mission:Dignity grant. You can also email us at if you have any questions or want more information about our program.
