Support our New Mission Outreach
Together We Can Make a Difference!
Our Indiana District is attempting to start a new mission outreach in Richmond, Kentucky. The Board of Directors of the Indiana District has boldly stated that they will call a missionary to Richmond, Kentucky, if funding for this missionary is procured. Why Richmond? Consider these statistics:
- Size. Richmond is the third largest city in the bluegrass region of Kentucky, following Louisville and Lexington. Richmond is the s largest city in the whole state of Kentucky.
- Growth. Richmond has been growing steadily in population since 2000.
- Un-churched People. Approximately 61% of the population in Madison County, home to Richmond, reports as un-claimed religious status. That means that they claim no affiliation with any religion of any type.
- Campus Ministry Potential. Richmond, Kentucky, is home to Eastern Kentucky University, with an enrollment in 2022 of almost 14,500 students. So not only is Richmond a good possibility for a new mission start, but it also has the added benefit of a potential Campus Ministry start as well.
Give to Outreach Kentucky.
