The Congregational Excellence staff strives to help local congregations reach their full potential to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

In this section, you can find information related to many areas of our ministry together in the Great Plains Conference.

To the left, you will find links to ministries for youth, young adults, our six camps, our many campus ministries, new church development, Hispanic ministry, youth ministry, small-membership churches and more. You'll also find links with valuable information about getting involved in Lay Servant Ministry, exploring your call via summer internships, resources for planning worship services and even ways to get involved in mission projects both within the conference boundaries and beyond.

If you have any questions regarding congregational excellence, contact the Wichita office at 316-684-0266 or 800-745-2350.
