In 2001, the Lord gave Clint and Mary Sprague fresh vision for a dynamic, outreach-oriented church in the Kansas City area. After 13 years of missions and youth ministry, it became clear that God was calling them to plant a new life-giving church in their hometown.
In June of 2002, Pastor Clint and Mary were commissioned by Resurrection Life Church International to plant Life Church (now LifeMission Church) in the Kansas City area.
In August, they began holding Bible studies and prayer meetings with a small group of people at their home in Olathe. They would have dinner, study the early church from the Book of Acts, and pray together.
The first public worship service was held on September 22, 2002 in the auditorium of Santa Fe Trail Middle School. With over 100 people in attendance, the expectation was high and the momentum built quickly.
During the next few years, the church grew to over a 1,500 people in weekend attendance, and saw 100’s respond to salvation invitations! In 2008 they moved into a new worship center to make room for more people to come to Life. In 2012, they planted their first extension campus in Ottawa, KS.
In the summer of 2015, they changed the name of “Life Church” to “LifeMission Church” as a way to clarify and strengthen the focus of the church.
LifeMission Church is active in missionary outreaches around the world, as well as in church planting and multiplication through extension campuses in the US.
