Identify Mission Sites for Church Planting
The Mission Point report identifies the top locations in the Central Coast Region of the state that has the greatest number of households with the least percentage of active evangelical presence within 3 miles. These are locations where few active (meaning attending an evangelical church at least 1 Sunday each month) evangelicals are located. In these highly unevangelized locations new ministries and new congregations are needed.
