NEW ORLEANS (BP) – “We’re not planting churches that will make a difference for a week or a month or a year,” said NAMB President Kevin Ezell during the NAMB report and presentation at the 2012 SBC annual meeting in New Orleans.
To highlight the need for more churches in North America, Ezell offered a historical glimpse into the SBC’s nearly two centuries.
“When we started back in 1845, we started churches at a great pace. By 1900 there was one church for every 3,800 people,” Ezell said.
