For more than 50 years, The Council of Churches has been bringing people TOGETHER to inspire hope in our community. The year 2020 was challenging but hope continued to shine brightly.  Thanks to our combined efforts our neighbors found food, shelter, clothing, safety, and security in services at The Council. We are Better Together!


The mission of the Council of Churches of the Ozarks is to improve the quality of life in our region through compassionate service and outreach to the most vulnerable neighbors by doing together what can best be done together in the name of Jesus Christ.

Inspiring Hope

With our faith, our gifts, and our service, the Council of Churches of the Ozarks is united as one Family: the family of Christ to manifest love in the presence of brokenness. In a culture where we are encouraged to count and compare and compete and to separate by race, religion, politics, economic status, gender identity, and more, we stand together by inspiring hope through compassion and acceptance.

We remain committed to inspiring hope in our community through this crisis.  Out of an abundance of caution and to assist with our nation’s preventative efforts, the Council of Churches of the Ozarks continues modified services because the safety of our guests, volunteers, and employees is our top priority. Along with our routine safety standards and procedures, we will continue to take additional precautions with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) concern.  Please click here to learn the steps we are taking to serve and protect.
