Congregational Excellence

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 camps, our many campus ministries, new church development, racial and ethnic 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, email the team at or call 785-414-4242.

Download the digital Church Playbook for resources available to your congregation. Please contact your District Superintendent for further information.
