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.
Volunteers will help prepare 250 nutritious meals (200 frozen and 50 shelf-stable meals) to help with food insecurity in New Orleans. The meals will be stored at the Baptist Friendship House and the New Orleans Baptist Association (NOBA). Food insecurity is a real issue in New Orleans, especially for those who rely on limited food stamps to purchase groceries. Inflation has exacerbated the problem. The meals will be used by inner-city NOBA churches to assist church members and individuals they are trying to reach with the gospel. Providing food assistance will help these churches meet real needs and remove barriers to evangelism and discipleship.
