We participate in and lead the following ministries:
Each December, new coats are given out free of charge to low income children in the local community. New coats and money for this project are donated by Lynchburg Baptist Association churches, Sunday School classes or individuals. Parents are sent a letter asking them to call back to give us their children’s coat sizes and to make an appointment time to pick up the coats. There is no charge for coats given out to children.
New children’s coats in sizes 5-18 or monetary donations (to buy new coats) are needed for this ministry.
Each Tuesday, from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m., a specific church provides entertainment, games, refreshments and a brief devotional to boys and girls in the Lynchburg Detention Home.
English As A Second Language (ESL) classes are held for Internationals or those seeking to learn the English language, mid-September through mid-May at Chestnut Hill Baptist Church, located at 5225 Fort Avenue (across the street from the Waffle House Restaurant).
Hope Aglow provides Christian literature and Bibles to inmates of the Blue Ridge Regional Jail in Lynchburg. Since 10,000 people go through this system a year, all used Sunday School materials, Christian books, magazines, and CDs, and Bibles help fill a vast need. Materials may be collected and brought to the LBA or directly to Rev. Andy Grose, our chairman for this partnership ministry, who is the pastor of College Hill Baptist Church.

Klothes 4 Kids is a ministry of the churches of the Lynchburg Baptist Association which helps low-income families purchase affordable back-to-school clothing for their children.
