As of December 31, 2021 John Calvin Presbytery consists of 2,412 members of the body of Christ serving 6 counties in Southeast Kansas and 27 counties in Southwest Missouri through 45 congregations. We extend from Iola and Parsons, Kansas, to Rolla and West Plains, Missouri. Our site has been designed to meet the needs of the members and staff in our congregations. We now have a virtual office and are available to be in communities around the presbytery on a regular basis. If you would like to meet with us on one of those days, just give us a call and we will arrange a meeting.
However, if you are looking for a new church, upcoming events, and more information about us, this site is designed for you in mind, as well to help you locate a church that meets your needs.
We invite you to explore this site often, and return to see new and exciting things happening throughout the JCP.
