We talk a lot at NAMB about lostness rates and church-to-population ratios because these are the numbers that help prioritize our efforts. By far the least-reached area of North America is Quebec and our efforts there are concentrated on metropolitan Montreal where 3.8 million people live.

Recently I wrote about NAMB’s church-centric approach to church planting, evangelism and raising up the next generation of missionaries and leaders. In short—NAMB exists to serve churches, not the other way around. That’s why Jesus established the Church and what He empowered it to do—go into all the world and make disciples.

I love visiting with pastors and local churches. But often when I do a pastor will tell me, “Let me know if there is anything we can do for NAMB.” I appreciate the spirit behind that offer, but it is exactly opposite of how I view NAMB. The way I see it, NAMB exists to serve churches and to assist churches in their ministry.

If you connect with NAMB very often you hear a lot about church
plants and the great need we have for adding thousands more in the years ahead.
You also hear us talk about the need to revitalize the thousands of SBC
churches that are dying or at risk. But there is another kind of church that is
absolutely essential if we are to accomplish church planting or church
revitalization: established, partnering churches with a heart for pushing back
lostness in North America for Christ.

Southern Baptists are blessed with many resources and we are grateful for every dollar churches send to us for missions and ministry in North America. But at the end of the day we receive a finite amount of funding and we must prioritize spending.
