Grace Announces Plans for a Second Campus In El Dorado Springs, Missouri

Grace United Methodist Church (Lee’s Summit, MO) – January 11, 2015

Today we announce our plan to launch a second campus in El Dorado Springs, MO.  Our new campus is on the site of the former El Dorado Springs United Methodist Church, which closed in 2014.   There are 3000 people that live in El Dorado Springs, and within 5 miles, 5000 people.

This expansion is not a church plant. It is a satellite campus. This means it is not a separate church, but a second Grace United Methodist Church campus.  Over the next few months we will outline our plans for reaching new people for Jesus Christ in El Dorado Springs.

If you feel called to be apart of campus leadership team to help, please contact the church office immediately.  We are in need of passionate people to reach out in the name of Christ.  Our pastoral staff and leadership team have been praying about a second campus for the past few years.  Several opportunities had previously come before us and we did not feel we were ready to move forward with them.  We did not feel the other situations were where God was leading us.

A Story of Grace by Jeremy Vickers

SunflowersGracebookPastor Jeremy Vickers shares congregational insights in his new book.  Jeremy Vickers, 38, has been lead pastor at Grace United Methodist Church in Lee’s Summit for eight years. In his new book, A Story of Grace, he shares a clear and concise vision how all churches should be a “light in the darkness.” From humble beginnings as a new church start, through a time in the wilderness and now a healthy, vital and growing congregation again, Grace continues to be a relevant witness in their community.

Jeremy drew on his many experiences in rural, county seat and suburban churches to develop a missional and contextually relevant congregational witness .Grace has always been a faithful and strong church. All they needed was a clear path to walk, the author recently said.  The book is written to anyone who is new to Grace and has a desire to know more about how the church functions and what they believe.  A unique feature in this book is the Enhanced video additions of the author sharing his personal views before each chapter. It is truly a first for the Christian community, as Enhanced ebooks are not available yet on all Ebook platforms. After seeing this book, many churches are surely to follow in a similar fashion for their guests and visitors by creating and developing their own Enhanced ebooks. It is a new and advanced way of sharing the timeless message and story of Jesus Christ and His followers.

Jeremy Vickers is an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church. He lives in Lee’s Summit, Missouri with his wife, son and their golden retriever.
