Why We Give

Generosity originates with the generous love of God. 

There are certain traits that define the culture of a group ... traits that come naturally and are expected. For The Bayou Church, one of those is generosity. Generosity defines the way we interact with each other and with the world. We believe we’re all on ONE MISSION—to transform lives in Acadiana through Christ-centered relationships. For that reason, we have launched a two-year initiative called Decades. 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 through resourcing ongoing ministry, making a difference, and future expansion. If we all take a bold step toward faithful giving, we will see God use our obedience to change our world, together.
