Welcome to the Council of Churches of the Ozarks

For 48 years, CCO has continued to respond to our community’s needs through nine unique and collaborative outreach services. We are committed to our mission to improve the quality of life in our region through compassionate service and outreach to our most vulnerable neighbors. Since our founding in 1969, the services offered by the Council of Churches of the Ozarks have never been needed more by so many people in the Ozarks.

Thank you for being a part of our story, serving together and doing together what can best be done together in the name of Jesus Christ.
