Rural Church Network


Mission Statement


The Rural Church Network of the United States and Canada is an organization of church leaders, educators, and other persons interested in supporting rural churches, those who serve them, and the rural areas in which they are found.  It seeks to demonstrate this support through:


Highlighting existing rural ministry resources on its web site

Analyzing the gaps in existing resources

Developing new resources for rural ministry,  especially resources that can be posted on RCN web site and therefore downloaded quickly and inexpensively

Providing linkage through its web site to other groups that seek to enhance rural ministry and life in rural communities

Enhancing awareness of the opportunities, needs, and challenges found in town and rural congregations and communities
