how we got started
Pathways was "planted" in 2002 with the help of some folks from St. Paul UMC in Joplin. The church originally met in the Old Alba School in Alba, Missouri and stayed there for nine years. After a lot of prayer and hard work, the church completed its current building in September of 2011. We had our grand opening service on September 11, 2011.
Our goal has been and continues to be helping others grow closer to God and to have faithful relationships with others. We believe that life is transformed by a personal relationship with Jesus and that we grow the most if we are in community with others.
