CWA of Missouri State Conference

This conference is an opportunity for Christian conservatives across the state of Missouri to connect and be educated on important state and national issues.
The goal of the conference is to inspire and equip attendees to then go and protect Biblical values and Constitutional principles in all areas of influence through prayer, education, and advocacy.
We believe together with God’s help we can turn America around.
