Stillwater Making Waves through #ChurchPlanting and Multiplication
Every believer is a church planter.
This is a lesson that I learned from Lonnie Tucker, pastor & church planter of Stillwater Baptist in Ponchatoula. And this is a lesson he’s teaching his congregation regularly. But it’s not just words to Stillwater. This year Stillwater has sent out three teams to start new churches in neighboring communities of Hammond, Slidell, & New Orleans. The result has been 118 professions of faith & 43 baptisms in 2014 & 301 professions of faith & 111 baptisms since 2012 when Stillwater Ponchatoula began receiving Cooperative Program funding. And another new church is planned in 2015. So one church plant has blossomed into five in a matter of 3 years! That’s the kind of rapid multiplication that will reach Louisiana & the world for Christ. Grateful for Lonnie Tucker & his team.
