Church Planting

 

The Harvest Is Truly White!
 

Some interesting stats from NAMB...

Where are the greatest needs for church planting in our region?

 

RATIO OF SBC CHURCHES TO POPULATION                    

(source:  On Mission Summer 2011)

                                                1 church per capita

South

Mississippi                                        1,375

Alabama                                            1,420

Kentucky                                            1,732

Arkansas                                           1,915

Tennessee                                        1,998

 

Midwest

Missouri                                             2,983

Kansas                                              9,212

Illinois                                               12,426

Nebraska                                         22,458

Iowa                                                   29,489

 

Michigan                                           33,682

Wisconsin                                         64,997

Minnesota                                         90,797

Missouri is not much different from the south when it comes to the number of SBC churches per capita…all of our neighboring states on the W (Kansas) E (Illinois), and N (Iowa), and NW (Nebraska) of us have significantly fewer churches than we.  The farther north, the greater the ratio.  IT IS EASY TO SEE WHY WE ARE PARTNERING WITH IOWA IN THE DAYS AHEAD.

The harvest is truly white...
