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 Covenant Church hub. The address is 4863 W Park Ave, Houma, LA 70364. Your project leader will give you instructions each morning of the Serve Tour.
Grace Fellowship Church was destroyed in the path of Hurricane Ida. The Bayou Baptist Association bought the property for the purpose of developing a community compassion center in the Chauvin community. We are already ministering to 100 to 170 families through a monthly food distribution in cooperation with Second Harvest . We are using the parking lot to do the food distribution at the present. We hope to first clean up the property, (it still shows signs from Hurricane Ida),then build a shelter on the property to provide opportunity to minister to the community on a more regular basis. We need to replace the roof on the only building repairable and do a general clean up to make the property more useable . We hope to develop an ongoing compassion ministry site and eventually a Bible study and restart a church as time goes by.
