Would You Like to Help New Churches?

Would you like to help start churches in Louisiana, especially in the southern part of the state where the need is the greatest? Would you like to start churches that reach the ethnic groups of the state? Would you like to help churches refocus their emphasis on the youngest generation among us?

All of that happens when we give to support state missions through the Georgia Barnett State Missions Offering.

Since 2013, La. Baptists have started over 200 churches throughout the state but mostly in South Louisiana. Many of these churches are predominantly African-American or Hispanic. Did you know we have Filipino churches in our area?

All of this happens when we are generous and give a special offering for state missions. If you receive offering envelopes in the mail, you have an envelope by which to give your offering. Also, you can simply write Georgia Barnett or state missions on your regular envelope.

If you give through the website or by texting, you will be directed how to give for missions.

I am thankful to be a Louisiana Baptist and thankful to see what God is doing in our state.

I hope that you will join with me in giving generously for state missions.

    Bro. Waylon,
    Special thanks to your church and the many other churches in Louisiane who support the GBO offering to help with our mission work in LA. Donna and I have a new church start in Plaucheville and we were recipients of the GBO offerings. Special thanks to all LA Baptists and all they do in support of missions in our state. I never thought I would be involved in a church plant at 72, but God’s plan is always best.
