About One Percent

About 1% of the greater New Orleans area is involved in an evangelical, gospel centered church. How is great commission calling you to respond?

Matthew 28:18-20
Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

Matthew 9:36-38
When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field."

I am praying that God would awaken the hearts of Christ followers in this city to actively serve neighbors, friends and co-workers in order to have the privilege to share the truth of the Gospel. I am praying, as we share the truth of the gospel and people respond,that we would be intentional to walk life with them, teaching them the way of Christ.

I am praying that God would lead men and women to move to our city, plant their lives here and work to build the church.
