The Missouri Annual Conference is located on the homeland of a diversity of Native American nations.
Despite European-American settlement and modern development, this land continues to have cultural significance for the Ni-U-Ko’n-Ska (Osage), Nyut^achi (Missouria),
Asakiwaki and Meskwaki (Sac and Fox), Báxoje (Ioway), Kaw, Kiikapooi (Kickapoo), Kaskaskia, and other Native American nations.
These nations had a significant role in shaping the landscape, and they continue a sacred relationship with the lands on which our local churches and our Conference facilities are located.
We commit to honor this distinctive cultural heritage in our fulfillment of the Missouri Annual Conference Mission, Vision and Values.
