Daviess-McLean Association

AMS Nathan Whisnant of the DMBA worked alongside his churches to identify these areas where a new church is needed. You will find a summary of each area complete with demographics. At the botton of the page you find an interactive map of DMBA's established churches (green), potential church planting areas (red question marks), and recently planted churches (blue stars).

Dogwood-Azalea

This area is located around the Owensboro Catholic High School and Owensboro Health Healthpark areas. The complete demographic report was done using a 1 mile radius centered on 1328 Griffith Ave Owensboro KY 42301. Within this area there are over 12,000 people (a very diverse population), a high percentage of Gen Zer's, non-traditional families, and a high representation of those who would identify with traditional Christian values. This area may do very well with a "neighborhood church" that is within walking distance for residents along with a bivo/covocational pastor. Other viable models may include campus, house/cell, and "school-based" church.

231 Corridor/Masonville

A 5 mile radius demographic study was done on this area and there are over 65,000 people living in this underserved area. The 231 Corridor is growing in population and is projected to continue to slowly grow. On the north side, Owensboro Community and Tech could provide many ministry opportunities with many more on both the east and west of Highway 231.

Sorgo/Brushy Fork

This rural area does not boast a large population, but does not have a church representing the people. Studies are showing that while rural areas do not typically grow much, they are in desperate need of gospel preaching churches who have a heart to be on mission and bring the Good News to their friends and neighbors. One benefit for KBC pastors who serve rural churches is the Bivocational Certificate from Clear Creek Baptist Bible College. This fully online degree works to theologically equip pastors who are not able to leave their context, but still desire to learn and grow in God's Word. Perfect for rural church planters!
