Pastors, directors of missions and other ministry leaders are invited to take part in the Louisville Vision Tour on Sept. 11 and 12 and get a close up view of Kentucky’s largest city, where a majority of residents don’t know Christ. The tour is part of an initiative called Engage KY, which is intended to get churches more involved in reaching out to areas within the state that are in dire need of the gospel.
The bus tour is limited to the first 50 people who sign up. Participants will go to hard-hit areas of Louisville to see first hand the spiritual conditions and to pray. They also will hear about specific needs from local ministry leaders during an in-depth panel discussion.
“We want churches and associations across the state to be aware of the many ways that they can engage the city of Louisville with the gospel through meaningful partnerships,” said KBC Missions Mobilization Strategist Doug Williams.
The Louisville tour will be the first in a series. Williams said up to seven other cities will be added through next year.
“The Great Commission calls us to be holistic in our approach—sharing the gospel in our Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the nations. For some, Louisville is their Jerusalem, for the rest in Kentucky it is their Judea,” Williams said. “What might God do if Kentucky churches and associations descended upon key regions throughout the state in order to intentionally engage them with the gospel? Let it begin in Louisville.”
Ministry leaders are encouraged to register now for one of 50 spots at this free event. The first 40 registrants will be additionally provided complimentary accommodations in the city.
