Church Planting

church planting across Georgia
The need has never been greater for church planting and Georgia Baptists all across the state are answering the call. Planting a church is no easy task and our church planters need your help and support. Ask us how to sponsor or partner with a church plant (traditional, bi-vocational, ethnic, or house church).

– For planning a mission trip to partner with one of our church planters, please contact Butch Butcher.
– For assisting with one of our intercultural church planters, please contact Jerry Baker.
