Why Church Planting In Orlando?

Gospel Saturation Strategy

More than 75 million people visited Orlando in 2018 and more than 60,000 people moved here. Orlando is the most visited city in America and the 5th fastest growing metro area.  Disney employs over 70,000 locals. The University of Central Florida is now largest university in the United States with over 66,000 students. The Orlando metro is home to 2.3 million people and the Central Florida region is comprised of almost 4 million people. Orlando is the #1 destination city in the United States and is the most influential city in America. However,  only 14% of Orlando's population is connected to a local church

Orlando is now a NAMB send region where church planters can receive up to 4 years of financial support from North American Mission Board and Florida Baptist Convention. The Greater Orlando Baptist Association also provides a wealth of resources for churches and church planters including Assessment, Coaching, Training and Support.GOBA is all about revitalizing existing churches, starting new churches and developing Christian leaders.  When we reach local people with the gospel of Jesus Christ and help them grow as disciples of Jesus, we have the opportunity to reach the world from right here at home.  You can help to support that effort by giving to GOBA through your church or individually through our secure online donation center.

Church Planters: Start Here

Our vision is simple: to see Acts 19:10 become a reality for Central Florida resulting in the transformation of people and communities so that one day... Orlando will become known more for Jesus than Mickey.

We are partnering with churches to start more healthy, reproducing churches. GOBA church planting staff provides Assessment, Coaching, Training, and Support for new churches and their sponsors. New chuches are encouraged to build multiplication into their DNA from the start. GOBA encourages churches to work together to fulfill the vision of giving every person in Central Florida the opportunity to become a disciple of Jesus Christ. Churches that reproduce themselves in new ways that connect with un-reached people are needed to fulfill the vision.  Contact us to learn more.
