The story of how Fellowship West came to be is truly a God story. In Fall of 2013 Pastor Steve Dighton, the Senior Pastor of Lenexa Baptist Church, desired to plant a new campus to the West of Lenexa Baptist Church in Western Shawnee. Through the process of seeking out a location God continued to close every door in our target area. While all of these doors were being closed a church only a few miles outside of our target area in Bonner Springs, Kansas called and asked us to consider allowing them to become the new LBC campus. Through much prayer and many conversations it was decided that it was God’s will for us to merge with the congregation of Bonner Springs Baptist Church. This was done in partnership with LBC and the North American Mission Board. We officially launched as a brand new work in August of 2014 and immediately saw God move in incredible ways. In our first 3 years we doubled in size and saw many people saved and baptized. Fellowship West continued as a campus of LBC until January 2018 when we were launched as an autonomous church plant. At Fellowship West, we are a community of believers that are excited about what God has done and are expecting Him to do great things through our Fellowship. Each week we remind our members that our desire is that all of us will seek daily to Share Jesus, Disciple Believers, and Love People.
