RANDY AND LISA PARR
A dream for Ness City was birthed in Pastor Randy and Lisa’s hearts in 2012 while working as missionaries in Sinaloa, Mexico. Randy and Lisa are very happy to finally walk out this dream for Ness County.
Randy owned a construction business for 26 years, when in 2004, he and Lisa sold their business to move into missions and ministry. After serving 6 years as foreign missionaries to Mexico, they were part of the team that started Central KS Dream Center in Great Bend Kansas in 2013. Randy and Lisa have five children and ten grandchildren.

Nathan and Kara Kitchen
Nathan is an example of how God’s love and grace is in a relentless pursuit of us all. He has personal insight into God’s ability to radically transform even the most lost and hopeless. After being unchurched his entire life he asked Jesus Christ into his heart in 2015. “Saying yes to God” became his creed so naturally when he felt God call him into ministry his answer was “yes”. He has a deep love for teaching the Word of God and watching what it can do when it takes root in people’s hearts.
Kara grew up on a farm in Kanopolis, Kansas, working with sheep and a very large garden operation; where small-town family values were ingrained in her. At a very young age God put the call on her life to be a worship leader and a missionary. Through her college years she was able to go on two short mission’s trips oversees and one more after she graduated. With her degree in elementary education she realized the mission work God was calling her to do was right here in Kansas. Kara was part of the worship team at First Assembly of God in Great Bend for five years. God has put a call on her life to lead people into the presence of God through worship and prayer. Kara will have an integral part in women’s ministry and discipleship. She is passionate about serving with the gifts God has given her.
Together Nathan and Kara have a desire to work together and minister to marriages and families through intentional relationship building. Both are teachers of the Word at The Generations Church.
