Because Everywhere Matters
This website exists because you do, the rural church leader. Because everyone and everywhere matters, the Rural Pastor Podcast exists to help stuck and struggling ministers and ministries thrive again by providing the quality resources needed to start making disciples and begin a new season of ministry!
There are three primary needs experienced by everyone doing ministry in rural places: low access to resources, vocational identity and isolation. Here is how the Rural Pastor Podcast wants to help:
- Isolation – our podcast is designed to help build a community around the unique needs of rural pastors and ministry leaders. Our hosts are longtime practitioners who ask you to pull up a chair and get to know them and others on this journey. We hope to connect listeners through engagement and online relationships that will bear fruit in a mutually beneficial way.
- Vocational identity – full-time ministry is not the big league, but anyone with their hand to the plow is a celebrated cold laborer in the kingdom! We want to identify, support and celebrate volunteer, bi-vocational and co-vocational, as well as full-time ministers. We want to create channels of communication and resources to meet those individual needs and let you know that what you do is important.
- Access to resources – what if there was a portal filled with free resources from churches who valued those working in the small out-of-the-way places, and also understood who they were? What if it included sermons, graphic packages, print materials, small group materials, and so much more? What if there were churches all across the country who are wanting to give away what they do to you so that you can do what you do even better?
