In the Spring/Summer of 2016, Montgomery Baptist Association (MBA) has been working to kick off an association-wide MultiHousing Ministry. The idea behind MultiHousing Ministry (MHM) is that local churches would identify apartment complexes and trailer parks where individuals and families dwell together in close proximity and they would engage those areas in prayer, service, acts of love and kindness, and Christian ministry. The goal of this ministry is for people to experience God’s love through contact with a local church and for missional communities to emerge there. This ministry is connected with similar efforts in cities all over Alabama (see map) and is sponsored by the MBA, Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions (ALSBOM), and North American Mission Board (NAMB). Rev. Alan Cross is working as the Missional Strategist for the MBA on this project.
John Wible, a strategist/researcher for CDI, recently put together some ideas for MultiHousing Ministry in Montgomery pulling from several resources. If you would like more information on MultiHousing ministry please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our goal is to see a network of churches engaged in MultiHousing Ministry across the River Region so that missional communities will be planted and more and more churches will be invited to connect with nearby communities so the gospel will go forward and people will experience God’s love.
