Mission Joplin shows Christ's love by meeting the physical and spiritual needs of people who need help, healing, and hope.
Mission Joplin is Forest Park's primary response to the devastating tornado that struck the Joplin area on May 22, 2011. Today, our mission ministers to tornado victims plus others in the Joplin area who need help with basic necessities.
If you need assistance, visit our warehouse at 8th and Highview in Joplin, MO (just west of 7th and Range Line) to receive water, food, clothes, dishes, toiletries, baby items and housewares.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
