On Mission Celebration

On Mission Celebrations, which are coordinated by and through associations of churches, continue to provide a renewed and growing interest in communicating the importance of missions to KNCSB churches and their members. Churches and associations are becoming more aware of the benefits of conducting On Mission Celebrations. OMCs have proven to be a very effective method to educate and encourage missions involvement and support in churches in Kansas and Nebraska. They also promote a genuine concern for global missions.

Viola Webb - A Look at Her Life

Viola Webb was a person who was full of surprises. On the surface, she was a perfect lady. Beneath her sweet smile lay stubbornness, passion and a love for sports, horses and rodeo. But most of all, Viola loved Jesus Christ, missions—and Diet Dr Pepper.

Her love for Jesus and passion for missions fueled her as she served Kansas-Nebraska Southern Baptists for 25 years. From 1957 to 1982, she served as executive director of Kansas-Nebraska Woman’s Missionary Union. After her retirement, she was active in her church, First Southern Baptist Church in Topeka, until her health forced her to step back.

A Texas native, Viola was the oldest of eight children and had many of an oldest child’s responsibilities. She worked with her father in the fields during the week. Then on Saturdays, she did the ironing for her mother, using “sad irons” heated on a woodstove.

Canada Partnership

Join God’s work in Canada

God has given the Canadian Convention of Southern Baptists a vision of starting 1,000 healthy, reproducing, cooperating churches by the year 2020. There are now only 200 Southern Baptist churches in the entire nation.

The Kansas-Nebraska Convention of Southern Baptists voted to enter a mission partnership with Canada. It focuses on the provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba, which are similar to our two states. The partnership consists of:

  • Church planting in Manitoba — There are only two Southern Baptist churches in that province, and they are located in Winnipeg.
  • Planting churches designed to reach students — Southern Baptist campus ministries in Kansas-Nebraska will partner with student ministries in Canada.
  • Encouragement — With only 200 Southern Baptist churches in the entire nation of Canada, the work is often lonely and discouraging.
