4 ways to pray for the coastal region
Monday, Sept. 24, 2018
Baptists on Mission/N.C. Baptist Men is responding to the destruction caused by Hurricane Florence to the coastal region of eastern North Carolina. While disaster relief teams respond to the physical and spiritual needs, let's not forget the opportunity there is to pray for the lostness in the coastal region.
The Strategic Focus Team works with churches in eight population centers and other areas across the state of North Carolina. The highest concentrations of lost people are found in and around the eight population centers, which are the Blue Ridge, Coastal, Fayetteville, Greenville, Metro Charlotte, Triad, Triangle and Unifour regions.
Although disciple-making efforts have made some progress in these areas, prayer is essential for God’s mission to take place. Would you join us in prayer for these eight population centers, lostness in North Carolina and the many people working together to reach the people across our state?
The coastal population center is located in the southeastern coastal region of North Carolina. This area includes five associations that total 12 counties with more than 730,000 residents. It contains several cities, rural areas, towns and a large military presence.
- The Jacksonville area, which is considered one of the youngest cities in America.
- Churches and individuals to reach students on the ?eight college campuses.
- Open doors to the gospel in multi-housing, in which 95 percent are unchurched.
- The unreached people groups throughout the region.
