Italy is known for good food, scenery, history and art. But the work among the evangelical church in Italy is slow and struggling. Many towns of 50,000 or more have no evangelical witness at all. In fact, evangelicals make up about 350,000 of the over 60 million population or about half of one percent. A child born in China is five times more likely to become a follower of Christ than a child born in Italy. The challenge is sharing the Gospel with people who have more trust in the traditions of the church than the truth of the Gospel. Many Italians were taught in the Catholic tradition, but less than 15% attend mass on a regular basis. Tennessee churches are encouraged to adopt a town or a neighborhood with little to no evangelical witness.
Buenos Aires Partnership:
Buenos Aires is the second largest metropolitan area in South America. Almost 14 million people live in the greater Buenos Aires area. But, throughout the entire city, there is only one evangelical church for every 15,000 people, and only one Baptist church for every 70,000 people. So while these are the least reached areas of the city, even the most reached areas still have great spiritual need.
Greater Cincinnati & Dayton, OH Partnership:
It’s in the heartland of America, and yet there is only one Southern Baptist church in Cincinnati for every 59,000 people. God has called church planters to this city to share Jesus with people who don’t know Him. Now, those church planters need your help.

The epitome of Western Independence, Denver holds sway with tremendous influence over the entire state and region. But Denver has the same challenges of any urban center. The darkness of sin is evident in tragedies like the memory of Columbine and the rawness of the Aurora theater massacres. The Southern Baptist church-to-population ratio for City of Denver is 1 to 52,855. A vital need for planting new churches exists between the urban core and the suburbs. All kinds of younger adults, who have spiritual curiosities and needs, are settling into these zones. There is tremendous need in this forgotten area of the city.

There is such a great opportunity in New England because the world has truly come there, mainly through their cities, colleges, and universities. In addition to working with new churches in rural areas and inner city neighborhoods, the New England Baptist Convention work with new starts in the collegiate communities. At any given time, you will find up to 50 mission starts in New England that are made of various languages and ethnic groups (the majority are Hispanic, Brazilian, and Haitian), as well as Anglo and second-generation English speakers. In Upper New England, the demographic is predominantly made up of English-speaking Anglo, but it is filled with many people groups. From the rural farmer to the seaside fishermen, New England has it all. We are even making progress with Muslim and Hindu people groups in various places in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. People of all cultures are just waiting for someone to bring the good news into their context of life. New England is a wonderful place to live, and it’s an even better place to serve God. It is truly a mission field.
