As a church leader you desire to lead your church to obey the Great Commission, but maybe you are not sure where to go? If you are looking for mission partnerships, look no further. The Mission Mobilization Team of the Kentucky Baptist Convention is here to help your church reach Kentucky and the world for Christ. To achieve this goal, we have developed partnerships in Kentucky, North America, and the world for gospel impact.
It is one thing for us simply to tell you about an area in need of gospel partnerships. But it is altogether different for us to help you experience that area and envision how your church might partner there for the gospel.
Thus, we offer vision trips in order that KBC churches and associations might meet missionaries/church planters, experience the culture, hear the vision of a particular area in need of the gospel, and prayerfully consider how they might come alongside of the work being done in unreached places.
Currently, we have three North American and two international partnerships that are great opportunities for KBC churches and associations to engage lost areas with the gospel, with the hopes of adding more in the future.
- Impact Boston and you impact the world. As a cultural and academic hub in our country, Boston is one of the most influential places in North America. Yet, there is only one SBC church for every 39,257 people.
- Nestled along the Ohio River, Cincinnati, as some experts believe it, is poised to see a population boom in the coming years. However, only 13.7 percent of metro Cincinnati residents are currently affiliated with an evangelical church.
- Salt Lake City is a city most often recognized for Mormonism. However, the city has become a major metro area and needs vibrant gospel churches to impact a population with only 2.2 percent evangelical presence.
- São Paulo, Brazil is the largest city in South America with over 20 million people. Easily one of the top 10 largest cities in the world, it is believed that São Paulo has between 18 and 19 million people who do not know the gospel of Jesus.
- Greece is rich in both ancient and biblical history. The gospel once took root in this country, but that root has nearly dried up. Of the 10.8 million people in Greece, only about .03 percent are Jesus followers.
KBC churches and associations are needed to impact these five areas with gospel faithfulness and partnerships. Learn more about where your church or association can partner through upcoming vision trips by visiting www.kybaptist.org/visiontrips or email [email protected].
