Why We Started This Podcast

One of the greatest stressors in rural ministry is isolation. This podcast is designed to be a kitchen table conversation between you and a couple of real-time practitioners who’ve done rural ministry for years. Our desire is to affirm the role that you play whether it’s full-time part-time or somewhere in between, and to share with you a variety of resources that will make your life and ministry easier.
