NEW ORLEANS – The 2020 Vision for the Baptist Association of Greater New Orleans was a year in development.
It takes into account changes in the association since the area was keelhauled by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. These changes include a decreased population, decreased number of churches, increased needs in the churches, as well as a scaling back next August of the North American Mission Board’s presence in the city, plus the impending retirements next April of Joe McKeever, BAGNO’s director of missions, and Freddie Arnold, church planting/disaster relief/church education strategist.
Read more about this in the Nov. 13 issue of the Louisiana Baptist Message. For now, while you’re in New Orleans for the 2008 annual meeting of the Louisiana Baptist Convention, take time to tour the city and pray about what God would have you do here.
Maybe it’s to partner with a New Orleans church to help them get back to full strength. Maybe it’s to indicate your interest in serving as director of missions. For now, see www.bagnola.org for the 2020 Vision, or the DOM’s (and four other’s) job descriptions.
