Publisher's Description

Whether it’s because of the 2016 Presidential election or books like "Hillbilly Elegy," Americans are beginning to understand the tremendous influence people in rural areas have in our nation. But rural America—not urban America—is also the new center of poverty. Thus, the rural church stands at the crossroads of strength and struggle. It carries the gospel, the very hope and power needed. Yet its ministry efforts are hamstrung because urban and suburban churches often don’t realize their need for rural churches, and the rural church itself rarely understands its unique assets and values. The Forgotten Church addresses these problems and:

  • provides an overview of rural ministry
  • explores opportunities recent trends provide
  • showcases the remarkable benefits of suburban, urban, and rural churches working together

This book is essential for any pastor—whether from the city or the sticks—because we are one body and we need each other.
