Does your church have any WMU age-graded organizations?
If you would send Nadine Peterson a contact for your leader, she will send her a free book from New Hope Digital publishers.
WMU wants this information to involve your church in the mission of reaching Arizona with the gospel. They have resources for all ages from preschool through adults – and for all men, women, boys and girls as well as all youth. We want to help resource new church plants and support all churches in missional lifestyle living.

Why do we need to plant churches? In an article for the November issue of Portraits magazine, Church Planting Catalyst Ben Barfield explains:
Visiting the NAMB website, you will learn the church-to-population ratio peaked in the U.S. right after World War II. In those “good old days,” the ratio was one church for every 430 people. Things sure have changed, because today the church-to-population ratio in the U.S. is one church for every 6,194 people… While the church-to-population ratio in the U.S. is staggering, believe it or not, our statistics here in Arizona are even more overwhelming. In Arizona, there is one church for every 15,744 people. Around 6 million people in our state do not have a relationship with Christ. I hope this breaks your heart.While our existing churches require even more diligence in carrying the gospel to our communities, the simple fact is … we need more churches.
