Church to Population ratio is 1 to 3,387. 18 new churches would be needed to get to our statewide ratio of 1 to 2,850. 64 new churches would be needed to get to NAMB’s suggested ratio of 1 to 2,000.

Pray for the pastors and churches of the Northshore Baptist Association. Pray for people to hunger for the gospel. Pray for believers who will share the gospel with neighbors, friends, and family members. Pray for Church Planters, RePlanters, and Partnering churches to join the workers in the harvest on the Northshore.
