Unity Baptist Association churches are keenly aware of the state of the church in America. We know that 900 churches close their doors every year. We know that thousands of churches are in crisis today and that reality is certainly true in Polk and Angelina counties. We are concerned about churches that are struggling, either because of demographic changes, aging population, internal strife, or any of the other myriad reasons affecting churches today.
Our goal is to help churches be healthy and engaged in the Great Commission. To that end we are focused on helping churches within our association who are ready to go through the arduous task of revitalization or even replanting. We are committed to raising up, encouraging, and supporting leaders who will step into difficult situations to help churches bring glory to God through revitalization. We are committing all types of resources to this task: including finances, materials, and people. Our preference is to see churches become vibrant hubs of ministry in all types of communities.
We are currently beginning to work through the process of how we can best help the churches of Polk and Angelina counties. We hope to have a plan in place by the middle of 2020. Check back here for more details as they become available.
The Church Revitalization/Replanting Team focuses on helping the churches of Unity Baptist Association bring new life to churches that are dying, plateaued, and/or in crisis.
