Why Church Planting In Orlando?

church planting in orlando fl

Gospel Saturation Strategy

More than 62 million people visited Orlando in 2015. Disney employs over 70,000 locals. UCF is the 2nd largest university in the nation with nearly 60,000 students. The Orlando metro is home to 2.1 million people and the Central Florida region is comprised of almost 4 million people. Over 200,000 local residents work in the hospitality industry. Only 14% of Florida's population is connected to a local church. 

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.
