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 New Orleans, LA. Our plan is to find ways to meet needs and bless churches, schools, local governments, and compassion ministry non-profits. In addition, we want to strategically help revitalized local 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 missions.
What will you do?
You will begin each day of Serve Tour at the FBC New Orleans hub. The address is 5290 Canal Blvd, New Orleans, LA 70124. Your project leader will give you instructions each morning of the Serve Tour.
Baptist Community Health Services provides healthcare to an impoverished and underserved area of the city others have ignored. The area has still not recovered from Hurricane Katrina and there are no grocery stores or pharmacies.
Volunteers will work to provide a facelift to the main office location of BCHS in the 9th Ward, replacing the skirt around the base of the trailer and painting the exterior. Volunteers will also install two solar panels that will provide emergency power for a medication freezer and refrigerator. Finally, volunteers will help clear a neighboring lot of debris and dead trees to expand ministry opportunities at this location.
