London is one of the Kingdom Connections of South Carolina Baptists: A Witness to the World.
Discover: London - Reach the World, Reach London. The nations of the world have come to London. Your church can begin a partnership here by participating in a vision trip. During this trip you will discover needs, and opportunities to make disciples among the un-reached people of London's many boroughs.
Prepare: If this is where God is calling you and your church to partner, the next step is the Borough Adoption Training. This will prepare you with several basic "missionary" tools and methods that will help you reach people in your borough. By praying around London, meeting people, and starting conversations that lead to sharing your faith, you will help reach the people of London.
Pray: You can begin praying for London right now. Visit the Lexington Associations' London prayerwalking site at http://prayerwalklondon.weebly.com/index.html for more information.
Go: If you'd like to lead a group or join a group going to London this year, please contact Tim Rice 803.227.6179 or email email@example.com in the Missions Mobilization Group at the SCBC. It is believed that this strategy is wise because it greatly increases the number of witnesses in the city, has been proven effective, is based on years of experience living in London and multiples our presence in the city. Each church or association that participates in this training in London should bring three or four people that will fill the following roles in a ongoing strategy: Borough Strategist, Travel Coordinator and Prayer Coordinator. During the time in London, you will participate in partnership training and then spend time prayerwalking, researching and mapping the borough that God has led you to adopt. Approximate Costs: $150 per day plus airfare. Download the 2013 London Borough Adoption flyer.

May 13-16, 2014
Vision trips are designed to help churches decide if they are being led to adopt a borough of London. This initiative mobilizes churches, organizations, and groups of believers for planting churches in London by reaching those far from the church. Those attending the conference are trained in evangelism, culture, church planting, and a host of other skills needed to become a London church planter. It is our desire to walk alongside you as you seek the Lord's will in the adoption process. Borough strategists take the responsibility to reach their borough with the gospel. Adopting a borough is not an easy task. This is why every borough strategy church goes through an internship and works with London church planters in developing strategic ways to engage the lost. Just like a growing child needs direction and help, a borough strategist is always helping their borough grow closer to God.
