bon air baptist @ the village is the newest campus of our church.
Bon Air Baptist Church (BABC) has a rich history of mission and ministry in Richmond, VA. With God’s help, we have grown in size, influence and complexity. @ the village, we will replicate the best of BABC to achieve our mission:
increasing numbers of transformed lives, emphasizing young and unchurched people.
Our guiding principles at the campus level are to be simple and serve. We live simple, Christ-like lives. We serve our neighbors.
- Member Mobilization – we expect members of the body to serve.
- Mission Mindset – we will serve outside the walls of the church.
- Mature Members – we provide multiple venues for spiritual development.
- Relaxed Atmosphere – we will be a hip, wifi café for first time church attendees.
With God's help, our campus goals are:
- Fill the sanctuary with 300 people on launch day of September 8, 2013.
- Offer a second worship service by Christmas, 2014.
- Be self-sufficient prior to Christmas, 2015. Our offerings exceed expenses.
- Lower our average age to 45 or lower by Christmas, 2015.
How do we measure success?
- We will provide multiple, continuous channels for feedback.
- We will conduct a formal campus survey every 6 months.
- We will evaluate using church-approved metrics.
