The Northwest is a very spiritually sensitive region. People are open to discussing spiritual things. Although Southern Baptists have seen a significant increase in church starts, we have a long, long way to go. We still represent less than 1% of the total population. To accomplish our God-given assignment, we need partners to help us in three main areas: prayer support, mission involvement, and financial giving. These are also called Pray, Play, and Pay.
Prayer is essential for the work of planting a church. Planters are stepping out of their comfort zones and church families to follow God’s leading. Their work is spiritually challenging and the warfare is overwhelming without a solid base of prayer support. Partners are needed who will be on prayer teams, conduct prayer walks, meet for special seasons of prayer, and adopt a neighborhood for which to pray.
Missions teams also play a strategic part of starting a church. They break ground through prayer walking. They provide the needed hands and help for outreach events that reach greater numbers in a community. They encourage the church planter and their team by their helping hands and hearts. Some individuals serve as short-term interns or lifelong team members for a church plant.
Region 5 has a all levels of economy and lifestyle. From the Urban centers of Spokane and Tri-Cities, to the near-poverty conditions of the Indian Reservations and countryside, one thing remains in common....it takes money to plant a church! Financial support will assist the planter to focus on the mission field and care for his family. It will allow a new plant to do outreach, secure a meeting facility, and be the hands and feet of Christ to their neighborhoods.
