The New England region of our country is richly blessed with natural beauty – from rugged coastline to mountain vistas. Small hamlets, rural farms, and quaint fishing villages give New England its charm. Maple syrup, luscious lobster, and vibrant fall foliage make the New England experience memorable. Comprised of the states of Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Maine, the region has a population of over 14 million people. Most New Englanders are a hardy people who enjoy the outdoors and are passionate about their sports teams.
The majority of New Englanders are spiritually lost. On any given weekend less than 3% of the population attend an evangelical church. At least 1,000 towns and villages in New England have no evangelical presence of any kind. All six New England states consistently appear in Gallup's top 12 list of the "least religious states." Despite these bleak statistics, God is at work in New England. People are being discipled and new churches are being planted. God has opened the door for North Carolina Baptists to play a part. Check out what He is doing and pray about you and your church joining in!

New England offers North Carolina Baptists an opportunity to serve Christ in an area of our nation that desperately needs to know Him. We will need teams to serve in a variety of ways in 2018. Please pray about your participation in this ministry!
