Discover how to lead well in rural and small-town ministry

What you’ll learn

When you hear the word rural or small town, what comes to mind? Chances are you might imagine a scene out of an old TV show or maybe a recent story on the news that may not be a fair portrayal of what rural life is really like. There are plenty of stereotypes that have become ingrained in our imaginations. Maybe it’s time to imagine something better—something truer.

Because the truth is that each rural and small-town community is unique and made up of people who are ready to be known beyond stereotypes. It takes gaining skills in listening, leadership, spiritual practices, and more to serve in rural and small-towns well.

Developing the skills you need is possible! This course will equip you for leading in a rural or small-town call whether you are the pastor or a lay leader. If you’ve entered this kind of call, changed calls, or about to start a new one, then this is for you!
