Ministry Teams

Little River Baptist Association seeks to serve the churches through three ministry teams.

Acts 2:42

Equipping Team

This team will assist, encourage, and resource churches to become healthy strong congregations as well as helping the leaders of each church to grow in their relationship with the Lord and to grow in their leadership skills for their area of ministry. This team serves churches by providing relevant resources, customized train- ing and consulting that assist in developing the overall health and growth of churches (Examples: Sunday School, Vacation Bible School Clinics, Children and Youth ministries, etc.) This team will facilitate training, resources, support networks and professional development as well as emotional and spiritual health for pastors, staff, ministry leaders, their wives and families. They will work closely with the Executive team in planning and calendaring of activities. 

Acts 4:12

Evangelism / Missions Team

This team will assist, encourage, and resource churches to start new works that reach the lost and unchurched of our area as well as helping the churches of the Little River Baptist Association to be on mission with Christ through evangelism and mission opportunities. This team identifies and assists in starting and developing strategies to reach new people as well as the development of mission work locally, regionally, nationally, and globally. It works to coordinate partnerships, resources, personnel and training workers for church planting, missions, and evangelism. 

Acts 1:14; 14:21-22

Encourage & Empower Team

This team will encourage and empower our churches and leaders. The empowering is a focus on prayer be- cause we know that apart from a move of God we have no power ourselves. This team will implement a plan to encourage not only our local churches and pastors, but also seek ways to encourage NAMB church planters as well as IMB missionaries. They will also develop a prayer focus and strategy for our association.
