Webster-Claiborne and Bienville Baptist Associations' Missions & Ministry Center provides a central location through which Southern Baptist work in our tri-parish area of North Louisiana can be coordinated. Our center not only provides an office for the Director of Missions, but also is a mission site and missions equipping center. Our goal is to equip churches for missions and ministry by offering resources to organize, train, and execute mission projects. Above all, our goal is to see people brought to salvation through Jesus Christ.
Thirty-five churches in Webster and Claiborne Parishes form the Webster-Claiborne Baptist Association. Twenty-five churches and missions in Bienville Parish form the Bienville Association. While these two associations have their own officers and ministries, they also share many cooperative ministries that we support, such as three missions—two Hispanic and one Prison Fellowship.
