Send LA is part of the Southern Baptist Convention’s North American Mission Board or NAMB. The North American Mission Board exists to work with churches, associations and state conventions in mobilizing Southern Baptists as a missional force to impact North America with the gospel of Jesus Christ through evangelism and church planting.
NAMB accomplishes this broader mission through Send North America, which is a national strategy for mobilizing churches to plant churches and mobilizing church planters and other missionaries to assist with those efforts. Los Angeles has been identified as one of the key strategic Send Cities.
This site has been created to help gather and encourage church planters in LA in their efforts to fulfill the Great Commission.
Why Every Church Must Plant
Throughout the Bible we see a clear pattern of God calling and sending His followers. And God wants to send you as well. As believers, we are a people sent by God to carry the message of God’s love, mercy and redemption through His son Jesus Christ. That is missions at its core.
The question then becomes how do we best go about carrying that message. We believe the evidence is clear we are sent to reach new people best through starting new churches. And through a coordinated national strategy we call Send North America, our goal is to help move churches and individuals into all regions of North America to do just that.
