Before and After: The Way Church of Denham Springs #ChurchPlanting #MultiplyLA

Congrats to The Way Church of Denham Springs on the grand opening of their new building. The Way is in their 3rd year as a church plant & have already baptized over 100! AND they are already serving as a primary sponsor for a new church in a neighboring community! Grateful for Planters Scott Cheatham & Josh Spinks.

The new location of The Way was formerly Calvary Baptist Church. As the Way grew, Calvary continued to face severe decline. David Brown, Director of Missions for the Eastern LA Baptist Association, led the two to begin to converse about merging. Zoar Baptist Church, North American Mission Board (NAMB) Legacy Church Program, Louisiana Baptists Georgia Barnette State Mission Offering each contributed to the remodeling. Look fwd to seeing what God does through the Way Church in the future!

Church planting is about BEFORE AND AFTER. The after affect should be lives changed & God’s kingdom expanding. And that’s what we see in Denham Springs because of the starting of a new church focused on evangelism & the decision of an existing church facing decline, to die to themselves so the kingdom can grow.
