One size does not fit all when it comes to resources and training - rural churches have significant challenges that are different than other churches including struggles for support, training and people. Conversely, rural churches often serve as a vital part of the local community and have passionate members who support and uphold the church and surrounding community.

The Rural Ministry Now conference seeks to provide ideas and training for church members to help support thriving, hope-filled rural churches across the Mark Twain District and beyond.

Our workshop leader is Dr. Carl Ellis, Director of the Lay Academy for Rural Church Ministries. Dr. Ellis' passion of 30+ years is empowering rural churches to effectively live their mission for Jesus Christ in their local community.
