City Outreaches

As a missions minded church, we realize that our first mission field is our own city.   While local outreach has always been important to us, in October 2012 we began regular weekend evangelistic outreaches into our city. These have included evening street ministry on Third Street in downtown Baton Rouge, one on one witnessing at the main city bus terminal on Florida Blvd., outreach into local neighborhoods, as well as evangelism at festivals and other public events. Because we believe that the gospel of Christ is the power of God unto salvation, we have purposed to be intentional in our proclamation of the gospel to our city. There is no other message that is so desperately needed as the message of grace, mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. We live in a day when many are hopeless, and as a people who have the only message of hope that can answer the problems of this world, we must take that message to them. Not only to the other side of the earth, but to our own neighborhoods.


We'd love to have other born-again believers be a part of this labor of love with us. Whether it is in the streets preaching and witnessing, or in the prayer closet interceding before the throne of God, we welcome those whose hearts have been stirred by God to get involved with us in reaching the lost souls all around us.


UPDATE:  It has been one year since we began this outreach team and I thank God for all the people we have had the opportunity to share the gospel with in that year.  If you were not able to be a part of any outreaches in year one, I want to encourage you to do so in year two. I believe it will be a blessing to you. One of the biggest needs we have is for intercessors.  I am so absolutely convinced that nothing of eternal significance will happen without prayer.  If you can commit to regular prayer for these outreaches (and even during these outreaches), please let me know.


"What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the one which is lost until he finds it."  Luke 15:4


I read this passage recently and these words stood out to me:  "go after" and "until".  This is what the outreach team is about.  Each week we are going after those who don't know Jesus.  We aren't waiting for them to hopefully find their way to our church.  They won't.  But because Jesus came to seek the lost, we go to seek the lost.  As Pastor Lee shared recently, it isn't always easy.  But we don't seek until it becomes difficult.  We seek until they are found.


Love you all in Jesus,
