Our Vision

The vision of Fredonia Assembly is to REACH, TEACH, MEND, and SEND. Through this vision we strive to leave a lasting impression on our community and its surrounding areas.

1 Corinthians 12:12 tells us, “The body is a unit, through it is made up of many parts; and though it’s parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ.” It is through this fusion, one to another, that we can successfully reach the hurting for Jesus Christ.

The definition of FUSION is the connecting of two or more things. We would like to invite you to come and connect with us at First Assembly in Fredonia, Kansas. We are a place for people like you … because people really matter!

Pastor Nick and Jordan Sheats
Associate & Youth Pastors

Pastors Nick and Jordan joined the staff at Grace First Assembly in September of 2019. They have four children, Jaxon, Juliana, Jediah, and Jocelyn. Pastor Nick has worked with young people for over 18 years in varying capacities from diverse backgrounds in Missouri, Oklahoma, and Kansas. His work ranged from supervising a residential facility for adolescent boys in the foster care system, to working with Jordan at a Teen Challenge facility for adolescent girls, to pastoring in the church. Jordan, as a teen, graduated from Main Place Youth—a Teen Challenge Facility in Kingman, Kansas. It was during this time that she came to know the Lord and was saved from a life on the streets. She went back later in life and worked on staff there with Nick, pouring into the lives of girls who were in the position she was once in. Nick and Jordan believe that building and developing relationships are the key to having the opportunity to share the love of Jesus with the young people in Fredonia and surrounding communities. They emphasize the mission that the Lord has given every one of His believers—to go into all the world and make disciples—to Love God, Love People, and Serve Others.
 

Amy Booth
Children’s Pastor

Amy has served in the Children’s ministry most of her life. Starting at age 10 she began helping teachers in the preschool children’s church class. When she later had her own children her ministry and desire to help children grow in Jesus grew immensely! Amy worked at the Fredonia Middle School for 5 years before becoming the Children’s Pastor at First Assembly. Looking back, she can see that God was preparing her for the future ministry He had in store for her. Amy stands in awe of God sometimes wondering why He chose her to minister, but then realizes that Jesus became her confidence and through Him she can do all things. Amy has one dream that is far above all other dreams, “She wants to please God!” 1 Thessalonians 2:4 Amy lives in Fredonia with her husband, Jason, and daughters Kera and Daya.
