CONNECTIONS MINISTRY

Connections Ministry exists to help churches, organizations, and individuals work together to make a difference in their community.  The Gardere Neighborhood and Old South Baton Rouge are the two areas of the city in which we are helping churches work together to reach and serve the people who live in those areas. Our dream is to see teams of churches working together in every part of Baton Rouge.
