“Building Lives for Ministry”

The origin of Concord Missionary Baptist Church of Jesus Christ (now known as Concord “Fortress of Hope” Church) may be traced to the homes of its six charter members which included Pastor Ronald Lindsay; his wife, parents, older sister and another couple who sought to build on Pastor Lindsay’s vision of a place of harmony and unity.

During a special service on February 5, 1987 held at the Southtown YMCA on Wornall Road, Kansas City, MO (now the St. Andrew’s Youth Center) Concord, under the direction of Pastor Earl Abel along with members of the Palestine Missionary Baptist Church of Jesus Christ made the vote for Concord to become an official organized church body. In addition, Reverend Ronald R. Lindsay was installed as the pastor.

With the millennium came a need for more space and the purchase of approximately 16 acres at 110th and West Longview Parkway was made. This state of the art facility houses our Sunday services,  conferences, community and ministry meeting areas and several administrative offices.  Phase III (Operation Nehemiah) of this project will be the home of a spacious youth and wellness center that will continue the vision of Senior Pastor Ronald Lindsay for the Concord “Fortress of Hope” Church and the community that we strive to serve.
