LOCALLY

Compassion Ministries   


We conduct various Compassion Ministries that build bridges for Gospel Conversations. 


Handy Man Ministry gives our men the opportunity to help struggling senior adults with simple, but much needed minor home repairs.  Changing a light bulb, fixing a running commode, and fixing a leak is very important to those who cannot get around. 


We participate with the local ministerial alliance to help with community crises.  Helping with funeral costs, buying gasoline and food for a transient, or helping someone start over after a fire destroys their home are just some of the ways we can partner together. 


We support a wide range of compassion type ministries within the region including the Care Pregnancy Center of Shreveport, the HUB Urban Ministries of Shreveport, Rolling Hills Thrift Store in Bossier City,

 

Whether it is collecting items for the crisis pregnancy ministry, the HUB Urban ministry or canned food for the Louisiana Baptist Children’s home, we want to be the hands, feet and mouthpiece of Jesus. 


MISSIONS MINISTRIES


We participate in collecting funds for our Southern Baptist Causes:  Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, Annie Armstrong Easter Offering, Georgia Barnett State Missions Offering, and the Louisiana Baptist Children’s home offering. 


Live Life On Mission is a disciple-making ministry that exists under the umbrella of Plain Dealing Baptist Church.  LLOM trainers mobilize churches all over North Louisiana to use compassion ministry efforts to make disciples who make disciples and start new churches.  Our church supports this effort with prayer and giving participation.  www.livelifeonmisson.com


Meadowview Missions Incubator is a ministry of the Northwest Louisiana Baptist Association.  This building houses multiple mission congregations as they grow to self -supportive status. Our financial support helps to offset the cost of building operations while these fledgling congregations gain momentum to go out on their own.   

GLOBALLY

Plain Dealing is supporting a new church plant in Loveland, Colorado.  The Well is a new church plant pastored by Dr. Billy Stevens.  Billy, Stephanie and kids are currently planting this new work in a region of Colorado that has a high suicide and domestic abuse rate.  Their strategy is to use compassion ministry as a bridge to start Gospel Conversations.  www.thewellloveleand.com
