Rural Matters Conference – Sachse, TX – September 19-20, 2017
Rural Matters Conference is a 2-day gathering that will focus on affirming, strengthening and inspiring the rural pastor and church, while facilitating the need to plant vibrant churches in rural communities. The deteriorating spiritual condition of rural areas combined with the unique challenges of small-town communities calls for renewed focus on church planting and revitalization.
The Rural Matters Conference will feature a mix of speakers, research and round table discussions. These will be led by practitioners, pastors, leaders and church planters serving in rural communities.
The conference is for anyone currently serving in small towns or feeling the call to minister in smaller, rural communities. Registration includes access to the conference, lunch on Wednesday and refreshments during the conference. You are responsible for your own lodging, transportation and meals.

The Small Town Jesus Conference – Leadington, Missouri – January 19-20, 2018
Small towns are full of brokenness and hopelessness despite the popular opinion that small towns are blissful and problem-free. Small towns are big mission fields that are almost totally neglected by modern church planters & leaders. City ministry has become, for many, the definition of godly ministry. However, we need to hear a call to take the gospel everywhere, big or small, because that is what Jesus told us to do.
The Small Town Jesus Conference is a 2-day gathering designed to fill you with faith and help equip you for rural ministry. Our hope is that you’d leave having been built up, and strengthened with a bigger vision for your context.
Early registration will go thru December 15th, so be sure to sign up before then to save $5! Regular online registration will go through January 12th. You can register the day of the conference at the regulary registration price. Also, there is a discounted group rate of $5 off registration cost per person if you register 5 or more people.
The first 75 people to register will receive a FREE copy of Small Town Jesus! We will have it for you upon arrival to the conference. Sign up for the conference HERE.
