Make a Difference 

Every gift given to The Bayou Church from 2022-2024 will go to the Decades Initiative— to help us build on the past to shape the future. We continue to be committed to living and loving like Jesus by serving those most in need, and we will give away $1 million over the next two years to make a difference in Acadiana and beyond through our community and ministry partners.
