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.
Lafitte Village is a housing complex on the campus of The University of New Orleans. Over the last 17 years Baptist Collegiate Ministry has had a level of ministry reaching out to the students who live there. Most of the students are international students working on graduate and post graduate degrees. Many of them are married and have their families with them.
In local partnership with Edgewater Baptist Church and the BCM, volunteers will prepare and staff a Summer Block Party, complete with a cookout, Fall Festival type games, a couple of inflatable games, and ice cream. The event will help build relationships with the residents, create opportunity for Gospel conversations, and open doors to invite them to visit local churches.
