Strengthen Existing Churches: Many are aware that the Apostle Paul on his missionary journeys started churches, but few know Paul and the early church leaders cared about strengthening churches. In Acts 15 (Acts 15:41) and 16 (16:5) Paul spent time strengthening existing churches. The many New Testament letters were written to established churches that needed help and leadership to address general and specific issues.

Every church, regardless of how old, needs continued intentional leadership or it will drift away from the message and mission she was created to fulfill.  SLMBA cares and is committed to strengthening existing churches. Struggling churches are encouraged to contact the leadership of SLMBA for solutions that can assist them to be renewed and/or replanted.
