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.
Pastor Clint and Mary were commissioned by Resurrection Life Church International to plant Life Church (now LifeMission Church) in the Kansas City area.
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 in the auditorium of Santa Fe Trail Middle School. With over 100 people in attendance, the expectation was high and the momentum built quickly.
2003 - 2007
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!
The church moved into a new worship center to make room for more people to come to Life.
The first extension campus was opened in Ottawa, KS.
The name of the church was changed from “Life Church” to “LifeMission Church” as a way to clarify and strengthen the focus of the church.
The second extension campus was opened in Shawnee, KS. Over 200 people attended the first service.
LifeMission Church is active in missionary outreaches around the world, as well as in church planting and multiplication through extension campuses in the US.
