In partnership with churches, associations, your state convention, and SEND Relief, the Serve Tour seeks to inspire you to engage in compassion ministry through participation in ministry projects in Jacksonville. Our plan is to find ways to meet needs and bless churches, schools, local governments, and compassion ministry non-profits. We want to strategically help local revitalized churches and bless bi-vocational pastors by providing assistance.
We want to make it easy to bring people together in Jesus’ name to make a difference.
Our goal is for the Serve Tour to become a unifying opportunity for Southern Baptists to demonstrate to a watching city who we are and (more importantly) who our Savior is. As believers swarm the city, we will provide pre-trip training guides and a 30-day prayer guide to help you take your next step on mission.
What will you do?
You will begin each day of Serve Tour at the GARDEN VIEW BAPTIST CHURCH hub. The address is 3139 Armsdale Rd, Jacksonville, FL 32218. Your project leader will give you instructions each morning of Serve Tour.
New Berlin Road Church is a congregation on the northside situated amidst several subdivisions where tens of thousands of people reside. They were already struggling prior to 2020 but were further devastated by Covid. Tragedy struck in August of 2021 when their beloved Pastor passed away from Covid. Faithbridge, another local congregation, is fostering them through this season.
Because of the season of struggle, they are currently passing through, many of the basic maintenance items have not been able to be addressed. You will work to remove the carpet in their sanctuary and then install the new carpet.
