Rural Ministries Regional Conferences 2019
Perhaps now more than ever before, our country needs the church at its best. To paraphrase another, the local church is the hope of our community when it is working right. Unfortunately, sometimes churches are not serving as effectively as they could. A church split, a failed leader, changing economics, stretched resources or an ageing congregation; there are many reasons for rural churches to be struggling and in decline.
However, we at Rural Ministries do not believe that God has finished with His church in the countryside; indeed we see many encouraging signs of growth. If you think that your church has great potential to impact your community, but lacks the resources, then you need to attend our Regional Conferences ‘Re:Generate’, in 2019.
Through an interactive day of four sessions which comprise discussion, teaching, resources and practical advice, we aim to help you reinvigorate your church, helping it become stronger and healthier, and even more missionally intentional. Your church has incredible potential to reach your community and beyond with the gospel of Jesus Christ; come and be encouraged by what God has in mind for you.
The four sessions are:
We’re not in Kansas anymore - understanding what has changed, and what hasn’t.
From in-reach to our-reach.
From volunteers to servants.
From a church mindset to a kingdom mentality.
Our Regional Conferences often sell out several weeks in advance so early booking is recommended.
Who should attend?
These events are for clergy, leaders, members of churches and anyone with a heart for mission in their communities.
