Evangelism, Discipleship, Leadership, and Diversity (EDLD) are each necessary in order for a church to multiply and remain healthy. But what works in Big City USA doesn’t necessarily work in Small Town USA. This gathering is about contextualizing EDLD for rural America and small towns. Our speakers have each planted or pastored churches within this context and know the unique opportunities and challenges that come in places far removed from the urban setting. By the end of the conference you will leave with new tools to implement as well as new relationships with those with the same heart as you have for the small town.
Whether you’re a church planter, doing church in small town, or even a big city pastor who desires to send planters to small towns, the Small Town USA conference is for you.
A more detailed schedule will be available by June 1st.
