BAGBR Baptisms

The Baptist Association of Greater Baton Rouge is my home association. I am always interested in what is happening there evangelistically. Here are the statistics I mined out of the State convention reports from the past few years.

Year 2008 2009 2010 2011
Churches and Missions 103 104 100 97
Total Baptisms in Association 731 611 689 639
         
Churches Reporting 2 Baptisms or Less 34 35 32 30
Churches not Reporting Anything 12 19 14 16

Not too impressed.

When I have time, I will count out the median baptisms.  The PDFs can’t be processed by a spreadsheet program so I will have to enter it all in manually. My guess is that it will be around 4 baptisms per church.
