The largest city in New Hampshire, Manchester is located along the banks of the Merrimack River. The Manchester-Nashua metropolitan area is home to nearly one-third of the population of New Hampshire. This city is in great need of the gospel. Of its estimated 2,794,000 people, 53% are unchurched. That equates to 1,480,820 unchurched people – nearly one and a half million!*
According to the Barna Group, an unchurched person is any person who has not been to a church of any kind in the last six months. One and a half million people in this city are not involved in church and are on their way to a Christ-less eternity.
At Vision Baptist Church, we are praying for the Lord to give us a young man to be trained at the Our Generation Training Center and then be sent to Manchester to proclaim the gospel of Christ. Will you join us in praying for this laborer? Would you ask the Lord if He wants you to be that young man?
