Abstract
The purpose of this project was to develop a church health strategy for First Baptist Church, Lake Providence, Louisiana, to address rural depopulation. A demographics study of East Carroll Parish, Louisiana, provided evidence of rural depopulation around Lake Providence. Research into strategy models of healthy churches determined a list of best practices of those models. With the help of a strategy development team, a church health strategy that addresses the realities of rural depopulation was developed and presented to First Baptist Church, Lake Providence, Louisiana, for approval. The project's evaluation methods included expert evaluators for the demographic study, the best practices of church health, and the church health strategy presented. Additionally, the strategy development team provided an evaluation of the strategy development process. The project director utilized the strategy model for this project.
