Arena of Life - Toronto, Kansas

Toronto Cowboy Church and the Arena of Life began as a vision in 2007 that God gave Jon and Becky Petty.  His first words were ‘go to Kansas and start a church’.  After a series of confirmations, in December 2007, the Petty’s moved to Toronto, Kansas. 

The first of January, 2008 construction began on the ‘bunkhouse’ which was to be a combination temporary residence and barn.  On January 8, the first church service was held in the partially constructed ‘bunkhouse’ with 8 in attendance.  God began to do many miracles and added to our numbers quickly.  Some seasoned Christians saw God moving in Toronto and moved from several places (Houston, Kansas City, Amarillo) to join in the work.  By Spring 2010, the church had enough money saved to begin construction on the current building.

In August, Toronto Cowboy Church began meeting in our current building with 30-40 regularly attending.  Construction continued as enough money was saved to begin each phase.  In May, 2012 construction was completed on the 4,000 square foot building, with 97% of the property being debt-free.  Construction on an arena is currently underway.  God has continued to add to our number with 100-120 adults in regular Sunday attendance.  Classroom construction is expected soon.
