Frequently Asked Questions

What can you expect from Here for You?

Using current forms of communication, Here for You should create opportunities for you to connect your church to this effort (see How can you connect with Here for You above) and provide opportunities for your members to share their testimonies, share the Gospel and extend invitations to your church.

Where is Here for You now?

Here for You launched statewide in February of 2019.

Who are we trying to reach?

We are leveraging the most current forms of communication to consistently and creatively reach the estimated 2 million or more people in Louisiana who do not have a relationship with Christ.

What are the benefits for area churches?

Church members will be able to see their Cooperative Program and Georgia Barnette gifts at work, seeding the truth of God’s Word in their communities.

Church members will have opportunities to share their testimonies, the Gospel and extend invitations to their church.

Churches will have the opportunity to welcome people whom their members have invited as well as others who may attend as a result of seeing the message spots.

How are the spots created?

The Here for You spots are primarily based on the words of Jesus. The goal is to take the truth of a verse and make a practical application of that truth to a specific demographic audience.

What not to expect from this effort?

You should not expect people to automatically attend your church simply because they see one of the message spots on TV, via social media or other media platforms. Most people will attend because someone from your congregation prayed for God to use Here for You to open the door for a spiritual conversation and, following the Spirit’s prompting, acted upon the opportunity.

What tools are being employed?

Primarily broadcast and cable TV as well as social media. The platforms (radio, billboards, newspapers, etc.) will vary depending upon the demographic audience being engaged.

How is Here for You being funded?

Currently Here for You is funded through your gifts through the Georgia Barnette State Missions Offering and the Cooperative Program

Why Are We Doing This?

They are worth it! There is not a person you’ll pass today that is not worth it.

Let’s do this!
