"The church is God's plan—you are God's plan—to reach North America and the nations with the hope of the gospel." - NAMB

The Glade Church firmly believes in the important task of planting churches in strategic places for the purpose of reaching the lost. We have strategically partnered with mission organizations, churches, and church plants around our nation who are intentionally serving with compassion and offering real hope where there is a need for evangelism. We are passionate about our mission partners, church partners, and the North American Mission Board (NAMB) and excited to partner with them to equip church planters around the world. 


Southeastern Kentucky is one of the most impoverished areas in the entire country. There are many families living without running water, working toilets, and in some cases electricity. The need is huge for laborers who are willing to serve those located in the hills of Kentucky. 

We have two specific partnerships in Kentucky. We have partnered with Big Creek Missions in Bear Branch, Kentucky where we are able to serve people in the community in a very practical way. Most often this entails some sort of home repair and a very intentional gospel conversation with the homeowner. In addition, our 55+ ministry has developed a partnership with Meridzo Ministries in Lynch, Kentucky. Both locations provide opportunities for us to encourage local partners as they dive into ministry in a very different context than we have here. They also provide us opportunities to come alongside them and serve with compassion and offer the real hope only found in the gospel. 


We are in the process of developing a brand new relationship in New Orleans. Be in prayer as we take the final steps in establishing a strategic partnership with a church plant in the city. Be in prayer for God's guidance and direction.

The northwestern portion of the United States is far less influenced by biblical truths than the Southeast. We have an ongoing relationship with Highland Baptist Church (HBC) in Redmond, Oregon. HBC Redmond is located right in the middle of a tri-cities area about 100 miles east of Eugene. Our goal in coming alongside HBC Redmond is to partner with them to reach the Northwest with the gospel. 

We continue to pray for the expanded ministry in the Northwest as we serve with compassion and offer real hope. 

In the midst of COVID-19, we ask you to pray the following for each of our National Partners. 

  1. Pray for the health of our partners. 

  2. Pray for our partners as they minister to their communities. 

  3. Pray for encouragement for our partners.
