HOW ARE RURAL PLACES CHANGING?

WHY IS RURAL IMPORTANT?
Many rural churches have closed, creating a larger demand to mobilize many for ministry.
People in every location need vibrant, redemptive communities to express their faith.
Preparing for shifting demographics, Rural Advancement empowers and mobilizes people for ministry as well as provides rural pastors with resources for education and encouragement. While gospel influence in many rural communities’ declines, Jesus calls the church to take the gospel to every person in every place. Rural Advancement provides rural church leadership resources.
