Georgia Barnette is at Work!

Our Louisiana Baptists State Missions Offering, the Georgia Barnette Offering, is a great spark for missions all over Louisiana. In 2021, we received just under $1.6 million for the offering and this money has been at work across the state of Louisiana this year! As Louisiana Baptist churches give to the 2022 offering, here is a brief run down of some of this year’s Georgia Barnette expenditures, as of September 1st:

  • $75k in scholarships for ministerial students.
  • $206k in church planting and compassion ministry funding for over 100 projects across the state.
  • $92k in funding for the Mission Builder program providing construction resources and volunteer mobilization for church building projects across Louisiana.
  • $55k for training and networking events for leaders in non-English speaking churches in Louisiana.
  • $18k for African-American church leadership development and networking events.
  • $20k for special evangelism projects including Prison outreach and evangelistic event support.
  • $92k for Collegiate Ministry, including Baptist Collegiate Ministry (BCM) at Grambling University and Southern University in Baton Rouge and Summer Missions support for Baptist Collegiate Students.
  • $35k for the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary Extension at Angola State Penitentiary.
  • $56k for ESL (English as a Second Language), Multi-housing, and Chaplaincy training and projects across Louisiana.
  • $40k for Disaster Relief Training and Projects.
  • $26k for women’s ministry support, including Crisis Pregnancy / Sanctity of Life Projects and job training for women in crisis situations.
  • $150k for the Here for You Multimedia campaign.

Still around $550k to be distributed over the next four months. It’s always a lot of fun to watch the Georgia Barnette offering at work!
