[featured_image]Over the past seven years, the Missionary Church Western District has been intentional about starting new churches. The MCWD includes six states: California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico and Colorado.

I discovered that Google Maps has a very creative tool that allows you to create your own maps. Here’s a link to a map of the MCWD Church Plants since 2001.
