2016 Church Planting Scoreboard

Yea, I love whiteboards… First scoreboard update for Louisiana Baptists Church Planting in 2016.

A few Observations:

  • 73% of church starts since 2014 have been in south Louisiana, where 70% of Louisiana’s population & 35% of Southern Baptist churches are.
  • 2/3 of church plants have been non-Anglo, so hopefully we’re making progress toward our “every people group” objectives from the President’s 2020 Commission a few years ago.
  • This year, we should eclipse 10,000 new commitments to Christ since 2010 in our church plants years 1-3.
  • Salvations & baptisms were down last year which may reflect more churches in first year cultivation stage or more in south Louisiana’s harder to reach areas. 
  • Currently 78 projects receiving Cooperative Program funding across Louisiana.
  • Grateful for planters, partners, generous churches, & the prospect of 1,000+ new people coming into the kingdom this year through our efforts to plant new churches.
