Local Discipleship

Local Discipleship

We, at Summit Woods Baptist Church, seek to spread the Gospel to all people, and that begins right here where we are in Lee's Summit, MO and the Kansas City metro area. We find great conviction in the need to represent Christ as His ambassador at all times.

Street Evanglism

Our street evangelism team at Summit Woods Baptist Church would like to invite you to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost on the streets of Kansas City. The team distributes tracts and engages in One to One conversations using the Law to the proud and Grace to the humble, as seen in scripture. The team goes out most weekends to places like the 'Power and Light' district, downtown Kansas City, Sprint Center, and various events around town. They also provide evangelism training. See our church calendar for events.

First Time Visitor Outreach

We strive to personally thank each visitor of Summit Woods Baptist Church following their first visit. In partnership with our Growth Groups, we look to answer any questions about the church, pray for their concerns, and seek opportunities to share the good news of Jesus Christ. If you are interested in joining this ministry please contact Dawson Bryant.
