The mission of Dederick Christian Church is to glorify God by continuing in the ministry of the risen Christ by displaying God’s saving love for the world through our renewed lives.
Who we are
- A Christians Church
Dederick Christian Church is a non-denominational Christian Church. We are Christians, we claim no other name nor denomination.
- A Bible Church
The Bible is our standard of Faith and practice. It is the final authority in our teaching and guide to holy Living.
- Christ's Church
It is our daily aim as members of the body of Christ to conform ourselves to the image of our Lord. He is our king, master, Lord, and Savior.
- A Caring Church
We desire to shine Christ's light in a dark and broken world. We accept the rejected, touch the untouchable, and love the unloveable. We believe there is no color, class, cast, or creed that is outside the reach of God's transforming love.
- A transforming Church
Our commission is to preach the transforming gospel to all the world. As a body of believers we never stop being transformed by the words of Christ. We desire daily to be transformed from sinners to saints.
Tommy Bowen - Pastor
Having grown up in Stockton, Missouri has given me a love for rural Missouri life and its people. I am an Ozark Christian College alumni with 7 years in the ministry that varies from youth ministry to preaching, this partnered with several years of time serving in various positions in the local church from Deacon work to Sunday school teaching. In my spare time I love sports of all kinds and am a diehard Kansas City Chiefs and St Louis Cardinals fan! I also love to be outdoors and hold a fondness for hunting and fishing as well as gardening. My bride is Mrs Amber Bowen who is originally from Muscatine Iowa but grew up in Nevada Missouri. She is the 1st grade teacher at the Christian School here in Eldorado. We are blessed with 8 children that range from 15 to 6 years old. The calling on our lives to serve as the pastor is very humbling and a huge blessing to us to be used by Jesus.
