From 15 to 175! Another Successful Revitalization

Another huge turn around on a property gifted to a healthy church from a church struggling to stay alive. Fellowship Church on Airline, planter/pastor Todd Blount, was gifted Immanuel Baptist Church on Airline Dr. in Gonzalez. Immanuel last reported 15 in worship. Fellowship has had between 130 & 175 since moving onto the property. Fellowship plans to construct a new building on the property later this year with the help of the Mission Builder Program (

This makes at least NINE huge turn arounds in Louisiana through church mergers or gifting of properties in the last few years. At least three more in the works this year.

  • Is your church struggling to maintain healthy systems? Would merging or gifting your property be a good option for your community?
  • Is your church ready to multiply? Are you in a place where you could merge or take on an additional campus?

A few resources to help with these conversations:
