We strive to have a friendly, non-intimidating atmosphere at One Church. We feel we are just imperfect people in need of a savior. Our purpose as a church is to tell people about Jesus, and the overwhelming love that he has for them. We are just one of many churches in the Joplin area, and we encourage you to find a church home and get connected. God has great things in store for you and He didn’t intend for you to live life alone!
When picking a name for the church we wanted a name that emphasized one God, one life, and one community. So we decided on the name One Church Joplin.
Shane Munn and his wife, Julie, felt the call of God on their lives to start a church and went forward with it on October 26th, 2014 with no place to meet but their home. And that is where the church, not even named yet, took root. From the Munn's house, One Church Joplin moved to the local YMCA, then a school before finding a permanent location.
Now One Church gladly calls 2802 New Hampshire Ave home, where they have two services every Sunday at 9:30am and 11:00am.
When interviewed about the origins of the church Pastor Shane Munn said "We did not have this vision of 45,000 people when we started. We asked, ‘What if we just get together like in the book of Acts, being generous with our resources and our time and let God do the rest?’ We just care about seeing families restored and the body of Christ united.”
