Bob Coleman's insight:

Luter is senior minister of the Franklin Avenue Baptist Church in New Orleans. He has been with the congregation since 1986, when it had 65 members. Before Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005, the congregation had grown to over 7000 members, making it the largest congregation affiliated with SBC in Louisiana.

 

Luter led the rebuilding of the membership after the diaspora from Katrina, and as of his election to the Southern Baptist presidency the congregation had 5000 members.

 

Luter's strategy for congregational growth is rooted in his concept "FRANgelism"—the acronym "FRAN" standing for friends, relatives, associates, and neighbors in acts of networking people into the life of the congregation.

 

FRANgelism is a powerful method for reaching potential church members. Many churches have FRANtastic days on consecutive Sundays after after daylight savings time.

Bob Coleman's insight:

If you're interested in historical perspectives on African American soldiers in the Civil War, read our post on the African American soldier which gives insight into Black Confederate soldiers.

It has been estimated that over 65,000 Southern blacks were in the Confederate ranks. Over 13,000 of these, "saw the elephant" also known as meeting the enemy in combat. These Black Confederates included both slave and free.
