About Lane Corley
Hello! I began working as a Church Planting Strategist for Louisiana Baptists in 2013. I'm honored to serve church planters around the state so that we can all lead people into a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ. I love to enjoy the great Louisiana outdoors by gardening in the spring, hunting in the fall and playing catch with my two sons all year!

However, worship is misunderstood today as a place and time (“the Worship Service starts at…”) or an experience or element of a gathering (“the […]
The story of Christmas is foundational for understanding Christianity in so many ways. God sent his very best, his own Son Jesus Christ – the God-man – on a daring rescue mission. In need of rescue was the human race including you and I. The mission included a display of love that led to the […]
Here’s a few simple holiday outreach projects that any church, small group, family, or individual can afford. I can testify that these make a big impact with a small investment of time and money. 1. Gift cards for ICU waiting rooms. At any given time in your community there are people reeling from traumatic events or devastating illness. Their families can be […]
Today we celebrate a significant milestone for Louisiana Baptists: 150 churches planted since 2010! Our goal is 300 by 2020, so this puts us at the half way mark. Proud of our planters & their families who have risked much for the Gospel in some hard to reach Louisiana communities. Grateful for sponsor & sending […]
The removal of wet debris from a flooded home is called mud-out because everything flooded is saturated with muddy water. The objective is to get the house cleared of all wet debris to discourage the growth of mold and to allow the structure to dry out as quickly as possible so reconstruction can begin. The following sequence of actions is suggested for your consideration:
Fifteen. That’s the number of “failed” church plants we’ve recorded in Louisiana since 2010. 15 out of 138 churches planted. I tracked this number down because it’s one of the regular remarks I hear from people wanting to question or disparage the role of church planting in the ministry of the church. “Don’t most church […]
