The Laclede Baptist Association is a cooperative ministry of twenty-seven Southern Baptist churches in South Central Missouri with a focus on missions, camp ministry, leadership development and Christian partnerships. 

If you are considering relocating to our area, we would love to direct you to a place of worship. When you visit one of our churches, you will find:

  • A caring congregation that will gladly welcome you
  • Preaching/teaching that is centered on the Word of God
  • Ministries to meet the spiritual needs of every age
  • A corporate outlet for truth-filled and moving praise and worship.

Peace and Joy,
Steven Strauch
Director of Missions
