MINISTRIES

 
 
 We are here to help you and your church be all you can be for the Kingdom of God. Should you have a need related to any aspect of church ministry give us a call. If we don’t have the resources you need available we will search until we find you help. The following are a few of the ministries we offer to our area.

Church Health (Lee)

We provide resources, consultation and leadership development to help churches be healthy in the vital areas of Worship, Ministry, Evangelism/Missions, Discipleship and Fellowship. A healthy church has the freedom to be led by the Spirit of God to be intentional in making Disciples of Christ. For information on upcoming leadership development events, resources and consultation agreements please contact us.

Mission Mobilization (Lee)

We are committed to helping God’s people be on mission for God. Our goal is to mobilize mission volunteers from local congregations. We do this through mission mobilization grants, cooperative mission opportunities, mission journeys and prayer walks all over the world. Contact us if we can help you be where God has called you to be.

Disaster Response (Lee/Itawamba)

We have trained disaster response teams to respond to natural disasters in the United States. We have four trailers that are equipped to provide on the field relief for disaster situations. Located at the LCBA campus is our Disaster Response Mobilization Center which houses our response equipment. If you are interested in being a part of our Disaster Response Team contact us for the next training time.
 
 

Pastor/Staff Search Committee Training

Our Director, Marc D. Howard, works with Pastor/Staff Search Committees to help them be equipped to find the person God has called to His place of ministry. Usually, Dr. Howard will meet with the committee for a 1 and 1/2 hour training session. Follow up consultations will occur until the staff member is called. As part of the training we provide various books, templates and other resources to maximize the effectiveness of the Search Committees time.
