Outreach Kentucky videoA new video has been released about Outreach Kentucky, a special mission initiative of the Indiana District. The project aims to plant a new congregation and college ministry in Richmond, Kentucky.

“According to census data, only about 30% of residents here still call themselves Christian, while more than 61% say they are religiously unaffiliated — that is, they have no faith at all,” observed Rev. Geoff Robinson, executive counselor for outreach.

The video features brief interviews of local residents answering questions about God, church, and faith.

Funding for the video was provided in part by  Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Office of National Mission. Outreach Kentucky is one of a dozen initiatives of Mission Field: USA.

“If you are not completely sure why we need to concentrate our efforts on church planting in the US, and calling missionaries to serve domestically, then you need look no further than to this video.  It captures perfectly the context of MissionField: USA… a nation that even in the Bible Belt is under a cloud of dark confusion and unbelief,” said Rev. Steve Schave, director of LCMS church planting.

“I urge you to consider how you can support the work of Outreach Kentucky, to bear witness to the Gospel among college students and others who so desperately need the Good News in these dark and latter days,” Schave continued.
