Send New Orleans is actively praying Luke 10:2 for neighborhoods and communities in New Orleans that are in need of a gospel witness. Realizing the greatest way to impact a community is through evangelism, disciple-making, and church planting, we are praying for passionate church planters and kingdom-minded partnering churches to adopt one of our top 5 specific locations in New Orleans to plant a church.
“He told them, “The harvest is abundant, but the workers are few. Therefore, pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into his harvest.” (Luke 10:2, CSB)
Summer of 2018 saw sixteen college students move to New Orleans for seven weeks to serve in with Gen Send. The North American Mission Board Gen Send program brings college students from across North America to urban cities in the Send Network. College students spend seven weeks working with the city missionary and church planters to learn, contextualize, and map neighborhoods that are potential locations for future church plants. Gen Send students are trained to use the book Tradecraft to compile missiological data and community information.
The 2018 students did an outstanding job of providing a prospectus for the Audobon and Feret Uptown area of New Orleans. Their prospectus, included below, includes a trove of contextual data and missiological information that will help the next church planter and sending church considering this area of New Orleans.
