The Greater Purpose Conference is hosted annually by World Missions Alliance in Branson, MO. This year it will be held on April 3,4 and 5, at Thousand Hills Resort Hotel (formerly the Radisson Hotel). Six sessions will be held at Thousand Hills Resort Hotel and the seventh and final session on Friday April 5th at 6:30pm will take place on the Showboat Branson Belle during an evening cruise on Table Rock Lake. 

My name is Chuck Todd. My wife Helen and I are the founders of World Missions Alliance, an interdenominational ministry that specializes in providing people like you opportunities to go on short-term Christian mission trips in nations around the world. We are located in Branson West, MO. This year we are celebrating 25 years of serving Christ in the Great Commission.

Greater Purpose Conference is our annual spring event on April 3,4 and 5th.

6 sessions will be held at the Thousand Hills Resort (former Radisson Hotel) and the final session on the Showboat Branson Belle on Friday April 5th at 6:30 pm.

If you love to serve, if missions are close to your heart, or if you simply need to be refreshed spiritually, Greater Purpose Conference for you!

This conference will connect you with a community of believers who share your passion to help others and be used by God. It will also introduce you to opportunities to serve through short term Christian mission trips in over 32 nations.

At the Greater Purpose Conference, you will discover how your gifts, talents and testimony can be used on the mission field to share the Gospel and bring people to Christ.

The most valuable things in life are things money cannot buy. There are “divine appointments” that are rare and extremely precious. They hold tremendous value when seized and can have a life long impact on you. I believe the Greater Purpose Conference is one of those valuable moments to be seized.

When my wife Helen and I started World Missions Alliance in 1999, we had clear guidance from God that our service in the Great Commission had two goals – proclaiming the Gospel in the world’s “hot spots” and helping Christians like you find their place in world missions.

Our ministry motto is: Changed lives Change lives!

This means if your life has been changed by Christ, you can help others experience the same through World Missions Alliance.

Your story, your testimony and your relationship with Jesus are powerful tools that make an effective missionary and can help others to experience transformation through Christ.

At World Missions Alliance and at the Greater Purpose Conference, we want to help you fulfill your calling and discover your greater purpose through short term missions.

In Christ,

Chuck and Helen Todd

Founders of World Missions Alliance

You are invited to join us Friday April 5th at 7:00pm (boarding is at 6:30pm) as we set sail for a beautiful sunset cruise on Table Rock Lake. We will join together in anointed worship led by Christina Rimmer followed by a presentation of exciting mission trip opportunities, life-changing testimonies shared by Safeeya Schnaufer and Phillip Todd, and a powerful and inspiring message from Mike Brown who will train you in Kingdom Laws that will move you into the strength and wisdom of God to attain His goals for your life and complete your assignment on earth.

Dr. Mike Brown, Founder and President of Strength & Wisdom Ministries, is one of the most uniquely gifted communicators in America today. More than 10,000 audiences in eight countries have attended his meetings, crusades and seminars. He is a Pastor, Evangelist and a Missionary Evangelist, Bible College Professor, and Special Guest on International Television and Radio Ministries.  He has authored 4 Books: Expectation, Discovering the Lost Diamond of Honor, Avoiding The Snare, and his newest, 31 Pillars of Honor.

Safeeya Schnaufer is a former Muslim, born and raised in the Middle East, grew up in a very strict Muslim family and as a young child witnessed a beheading of a woman in Mecca. This experience left her scarred and frightened of Allah. Safeeya’s story of healing and transformation through Christ will leave you astonished and inspired.

Phillip Todd is the Senior Economist for the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee and a house church leader for Antioch, Washington DC. His passion is to see our country thrive as it pursues Godly principles and to see people flourish in their relationship with Christ. Phillip accepted Christ at the age of 3 during a mission in China and spent his childhood on the mission field traveling with his parents. After completing his graduate degree, he moved to Washington DC where he has served as a Senior Economist on several Senate Committees. He has maintained a deep relationship with the Lord and in the midst of a busy career has remained actively involved in church and missionary work. Early last year Phillip almost lost his life being brutally attacked by a stranger with a knife. His testimony of miraculous survival and the impact it has made on many lives will strengthen your faith and ignite your hope.

Christina Rimmer is a singer, song writer, and preacher from the suburbs of Detroit MI. She has traveled across the U.S. and internationally spreading the Gospel through song and His Word. We are very excited that she and her anointed musicians will be leading you in worship at the 2024 Greater Purpose Conference. You will find yourself lost in the magnificent atmosphere of reverence, praise and adoration of our Lord.
