What is a "Pocket of Lostness" in North...

Pockets of lostness represent geographic areas across North Carolina with high concentrations of people who do not know Christ. Together, we must take the gospel to them.[more]


 

In keeping with its stated mission, the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina will assist churches in evangelizing all people groups in every ethnic and/or cultural context by developing and applying disciple-making ministry models with an Acts 1:8 focus. The Strategic Focus Team is on point for this effort. Read the full strategy of Impacting Lostness Through Disciple-Making here.

An estimated 5.8 million lost people live in North Carolina and that number is surely growing. Further study indicates that 97 of the top 100 pockets of lostness, where a large portion of the 5.8 million are concentrated, are located in eight population centers. The Convention has responded by assigning a strategy coordinator to each of these eight population centers.

The work of the eight strategy coordinators is very relationship driven.The strategy coordinators immerse themselves in their population center, developing an understanding of the pockets of lostness, the churches and association(s), the community at large and the ministry efforts already underway toward impacting lostness through disciple-making. The goal is to make, nurture and grow reproducing followers of Christ through a well-defined, contextually appropriate local strategy.
