Welcome to First Baptist Joplin

"I need your help to structure Children's Ministry in a way that benefits our kids, teacher, parents and volunteers! In order to do that I need a clear picture of the current "state of the ministry" and our kids. Please help me to meet with EVERY parent (or grandparent/guardian,) teacher, and volunteer. Sign up to meet with me for 10-15 minutes. (Families/husbands & wives just need one meeting.) You can sign up with the 'Coffee with Katie' link in the menu."

-Katie Jones (Children's Minister) 


Worshipping God. Equipping Believers. Engaging The World.

We are a steadily growing church in Joplin that started in 1889 and continues to flourish and grow, with the goal of worshipping Jesus, equipping believers, and engaging the lost.
