Welcome from Our Senior Minister

Seeking God, Sharing Christ, Serving Others


Greetings from Eastgate Christian Church in Independence, MO!

Rev. Rhonda Hetzel is glad you are seeking more information about Eastgate and welcomes your call or email. Rev. Hetzel is happy to speak with you regarding spiritual needs and personal concerns. She also can answer questions about joining the church, deepening your relationship with God, and the Eastgate ministries. Rev. Hetzel’s protected day off is on Fridays, unless there is an emergency. If you don’t already have her cell phone number, please contact the office for it.

On this website, you'll find a variety of information about us. You can find answers to many questions about our worship services, and an explanation of why we celebrate the Lord's Supper each time we worship together.

Of course, while this can give you a taste of our ministry at Eastgate, there is no substitute for joining us in worship. Rev. Hetzel hopes to meet you in person. You are always welcome at Eastgate.
