Product Description

Many books are published addressing evangelistic concerns of the urban and suburban churches, but few speak to the rural churches. With different concerns and dynamics than larger churches, rural congregations need to find ways to break down barriers built up over years of close physical contact with little spiritual challenge. Many rural churchgoers do not engage their fellow churchgoers, and so many never evangelize those with whom they do business with every day. This can be a problem when those same people constitute ones entire sphere of acquaintances.
<>Rural Evangelism<> is not a primer on evangelism, but rather attempts to refocus the evangelistic ministry of rural churches into a vibrant and active arm of the church. Leaving evangelistic instruction to dedicated ministries (such as Way of the Master or Evangelism Explosion), Ruffcorn rightly focuses on the Holy Spirit's role in evangelism while dealing with rural struggles in evangelism.

Publisher's Description

Aware that pastors and church members need a new vision for evangelism in small towns and rural areas, Ruffcorn presents lively suggestions and new understandings gleaned from his workshops on rural evangelism and his own experience. He emphasizes the need for congregations to dwell on both the inward and outward aspects of nurturing their own members and reaching out to neighbors.

Publisher Description

Responding to the need for a new vision of evangelism for small towns and rural areas, Kevin Ruffcorn presents lively suggestions and new understandings gleaned from his workshops on rural evangelism and his own experience. He emphasizes that the vision of evangelism held by those in suburbia and other densely populated areas usually does not fit rural settings. The author looks at the possibilities and the problems typical of less densely populated areas, reviewing some concerns many of them experience: small memberships, frequent turnover of pastors, decreasing population of surrounding communities, and the challenge of facilitating needed changes.
