Hi there!

This site is the first step in an effort to establish an Orthodox Christian presence in the Rolla, MO area (Waynesville, St. Robert, St. James, Ft. Leonard Wood, and Phelps and Pulaski County). Though it’s headed primarily by Father Joel Wilson and his family, it’s really more of a collaborative effort by all the good folks listed on the “Who’s Involved” page.

Our goals are listed on the “Our Vision” page, and, if you are someone who would like to learn more about Orthodoxy, a good place to start is the “About Orthodoxy” page.

We’re thrilled that you’re here visiting the site. If you’re interested in joining the newly established mission church in Rolla, start with the “Join Us” page in the navigation bar above. Get in touch, spread the word, or, if nothing else, please pray for us in our efforts.

Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.

Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”

Matthew 9:35-39
