Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of New Gideon Baptist Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. New Gideon Baptist members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church vehicles, to preparing the church bulletins.  

Nehemiah Community Mission Outreach

New Gideon Baptist is thrilled to apart of the Valley Park community.  Valley Park has a rich African American history within the city of Baton Rouge.  New Gideon is reaching out to those in the community to spread of God’s kingdom.  We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers to minister in our own community. Speak with Minister Broderick Fowler for more information.  

Music & Drama

God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music and drama ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir. Still others get involved in drama. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of New Gideon Baptist Church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.  


The usher team at New Gideon Baptist Church fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.  

Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of New Gideon Baptist Church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our worship services are recorded and available both video and audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook and Twitter feed for additional church communication. Follow us at What’s Up New Gideon on FB and newgideonbr on Twitter.  

Marriage Counseling

Marriages can be difficult to maintain. Misunderstanding, confusion, resentment, and anger can flare up in any marriage. Several couples at New Gideon Baptist Church serve other families as marriage counselors. Their role in listening, understanding, helping, and encouraging struggling couples has, by God’s grace, saved marriages, and repaired relationships. Couples have found fresh hope and new joy in a warm and fulfilling relationship with their spouse.  

Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. New Gideon Baptist Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Saturday morning at 9 AM prayer warriors are at New Gideon praying for the ministry of the Word. Each Thursday, before Mid-Week service, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study.  

Children’s Church

Our interactive and engaging Children’s Church service is held each 1st and 2nd Sunday during morning worship service.  In the words of Dr. Tony Evans, it’s easier to shape a child than to repair an adult. Thus, our time spent with our youth is a critical moment of impressionable teaching. During Children’s Church, our little saints are inspired to participate in our highly impactful hour of powerful teaching with demonstrations and involved lessons to not only captivate their minds but embed in their hearts! We teach our little saints how to serve and lead others to Christ. We welcome ages 5-16.

Vacation Bible School

The week-long event involves games, a lot of preaching, great food, good worship, and the intentional influence of camp counselors. The camp counselors are selected, screened, and trained for this important camp ministry. They find that their ministry is personally rewarding, and both campers and counselors grow in the process.
