The Conference serves Missouri, Arkansas and Memphis, TN. It is the regional segment of our denomination and supports three different United Church of Christ associations, including the St. Louis Association. Our support of the Missouri Mid-South Conference helps provide for our Conference staff who diligently work on our behalf.

 

C.U.E. Seminaries
C.U.E. stands for Chicago, United, and Eden Theological Seminaries - the three United Church of Christ seminaries in the Midwest (Chicago, IL, Dayton, OH and St. Louis, MO respectively). The mission of C.U.E. is three-fold: to strengthen the relationship between our churches and our seminaries; to further the mission and work of these seminaries; and to provide financial support for our seminaries. We live in challenging times and we recognize the vital impact of our seminaries as they prepare leaders for church and society, increase theological thought and scholarship, and provide multiple resources to the local churches.

The camp and outdoor ministry programs and facilities of the Missouri Mid-South Conference of the United Church of Christ offer wonderful opportunities to momentarily escape from the pressures of daily life, experience God’s natural world, take time for personal reflection, join together as part of a community and grow in one’s faith—as well as laugh, play and have fun.

At Camp MoVal, they seek to provide a “Ministry of Hospitality” through a wide range of camping experiences and retreat possibilities. They serve children, youth, families and adults of all ages regardless of religion, family status, gender, capability, or ethnic origin who recognize the value of all people and respect all faith traditions. Guests come from a variety of faith-based, educational, not-for-profit, civic and business organizations.

Shannondale_2012_ConferencePageShannondale is a mission project of the Missouri Mid-South Conference and is located 22 miles south of Salem, MO and 23 miles north of Eminence, MO on scenic State Highway 19 in Shannon County. This county is one of the poorest in Missouri.

The Shannondale Community Center was established in 1929 and serves not only the spiritual, educational and economic needs of Shannon County but also surrounding counties. It has a small, but viable, self-sustaining church; a place to camp; an ecologically managed tree farm (since 1949); and an affordable base-site for visiting the Ozark National Scenic Riverways area. It also provides a nature craft center and an after-school help program called “Timber Times” for twenty students. The children get homework help and a good meal which can often make a difference in their lives.

Arrangements for visits, tours and retreats can be made by contacting Minister and Manager Jeff Fulk at (573) 858-3284 or email at shannondale@centurytel.net. For general questions about Shannondale, you can also call the Conference office at (314) 962-8740.
