The ChurchBiz Cube is a ministry tool created by the Louisiana Baptist Foundation to assist churches in six different areas through toolkits. The six toolkits include useful information on the following: Expanding a Church Campus, Increasing Efficiencies/Maximizing Impact, Increasing Gifts Now and Later, Stewarding Cash Reserves, Emergency Savings Fund/Insurance Reserves, and New Church Plant/Satellite Campus.

Numerous state ministries are working to spread the Gospel and provide for those in need. Many are bi-vocational pastors diligently leading their churches and laboring throughout the community. Some minister to mothers facing unplanned pregnancies or provide support and resources to foster families. Others are ministering to international workers and students or meeting the physical needs of those within their community. And countless others strive to make Christ known and Advance the Kingdom through various avenues across our state.
At the Foundation, we’ve been commissioned by Louisiana Baptists to provide resources to help ministries like yours Advance the Kingdom. We do this primarily through money management, church business, and gift planning.
Watch our videos to learn more about how we can help you Advance the Kingdom!

Louisiana Legacy is a quarterly gift-planning newsletter published by the Louisiana Baptist Foundation with the purpose of providing churches with content they can use for their own church newsletters.
In addition to this, Louisiana Legacy is intended to provide individuals with information that encourages and prompts them in their giving to the local church and other ministries.
