Missions

The Bayou Church is all about transforming lives in Acadiana, Louisiana, the United States and the world. As members of God’s family, we are called to grow in our relationship with Him, and through that growth, to go and share the saving knowledge of Christ with everyone we meet. We want to help you find ways to do that through missions. We're excited to partner with incredible ministries around the world and look to continue building those relationships. We hope that you'll prayerfully consider joining us on one of our next mission opportunities. We'll prepare you each step of the way as you follow God’s will for your life.
