We are already in the first quarter of the year and a lot has has happened. Maybe you have forgotten your New Year resolutions or declarations and it’s back to same old routine as usual. Well here is a breath of fresh air. Welcome to the inaugural edition of the PRAISE REPORTER News Magazine for the Baton Rouge area. The PRAISE REPORTER was introduced in Columbus, Ohio in 2006. The PRAISE REPORTER is designed to report events and topics of interest to the Christian community.
The focus of the PRAISE REPORTER will be to report on the many positive aspects of the our community including the accomplishments of local people of all ages and denominations.
Being a FREE bi-monthly faith-based publication will give us a great opportunity to showcase newsworthy people and events happening in and around Metro Baton Rouge and surrounding
Our intent is to allow the religious community to speak to itself, not to tell readers what to think but to inform them and share good news about the great communities were we live, work and worship. Now don’t let the words FREE and faith-based make you smile too big. We sometimes tend to devalue a product when it’s offered FREE, CHRISTIAN OR FAITH-BASED. Although it is a FREE publication, it is not CHEAP by any means. All who are involved in the production of this publication have made great and costly efforts to see that the information that is contained
within these pages are helpful and informative. It is by the grace of God and their combined talents that has made The PRAISEREPORTER possible.
Our intent is to serve the religious community by encouraging the best efforts in the community rather than focusing on negative or discouraging news. We expect to celebrate real people doing real good, and to recognize and celebrate the good already being accomplished by the citizens of the Baton Rouge and surrounding communities.
In the coming weeks our PRAISE TEAM will be calling upon you for your support. We want to hear whats happening in the city. We want to know the issues that concern and effect you.
So look for the PRAISE REPORTER coming to a church, store, office or location near you. Support the avdertiser who have invested in this publication, the community and you.
