Church Summary:

Sycamore Hills Baptist Church is an established neighborhood church in the southern part of Independence, Missouri.

This emphasis is a common thread throughout every program of the church.

In addition to the senior pastor position, there is a full time associate pastor of education and music and one part time youth minister. The recently retired pastor served at SHBC for over 28 years. The current associate pastor has been with the church for 6 years. The current minister of youth has worked with our youth since 2015. Beyond our ministerial staff there are two support staff members – the church secretary and the church custodian.
