Our Mission

Think you might be interested in serving as a prayer coordinator for your church or BAGBR region? Here is some information to prayerfully consider:

~The BAGBR Prayer Ministry~
Main Focus:

The central focus of the BAGBR Prayer Ministry is to encourage each pastor and church in BAGBR to begin praying for revival in our churches, association, state, and nation. Prayer coordinators work mainly in their own churches, praying, and seeking ways to promote corporate prayer for revival.

A prayer coordinator's most important job is to pray for his pastor daily.

Secondary Foci:
There are two secondary areas of focus to the BAGBR Prayer Ministry:

Prayer Networking:

When there is a major prayer need within a church, the church prayer coordinator alerts his regional coordinator, who, in turn, alerts the associational prayer coordinator. The associational prayer coordinator alerts all regional coordinators, who then alert all the church coordinators in their regions to pray and make their church members aware of the prayer need. This is mainly accomplished via e-mail.

Special Prayer Events:

National Day of Prayer, See You at the Pole, Week of Prayer for International Missions, International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. These are just a few of the local, national and international special prayer events that are calendared throughout the year. Prayer coordinators receive information about these upcoming events and prayerfully consider the ways God might have them encourage their church members to participate in prayer.

We need YOU to come be a part of the team.
There are over 100 churches in BAGBR's four geographical regions. It is our goal to have at least one prayer coordinator from every church in the association serve with the BAGBR Prayer Ministry. Currently, only the following churches are fielding BAGBR prayer coordinators:

First Baptist-Baton Rouge

New Life

First Baptist-Baker

First Baptist- Plaquemine
Bayou Plaquemine

We are in need of regional coordinators for the North, South and West regions. Could God have a place of service for you as a prayer coordinator for your church and/or region?

If so, please read the posts under "information for new and prospective prayer coordinators" (upper right sidebar) entitled:
