Several great opportunities for planting in this area. North Thibodaux is ripe for a plant with a growing population & Louisiana’s 10th largest university – Nicholls State. Also, a great spot for summer missions experiences or retreats. Check out Lighthouse Resort Ministry in Grand Isle for info. Great need for a Hispanic Church Planter in this area, to reach out to the growing Hispanic population. If you love the outdoors, this is a great place for your family to plant & invest your life. Hit me up for more info –
