Revitalizing the Rural Church

Join us as we come together to engage in conversation about rural ministry.  This fun, interactive workshop will get your creative juices flowing as we dive into the culture of rural faith communities and how a solid vision will move you toward a “Love First” church.  We will explore ways the rural church can create changes to Sunday worship, technology, and children’s and youth ministry, while addressing challenges that will arise in the midst of those changes. You will leave the workshop empowered to go into your rural faith communities and be agents of change for the kingdom of God.
