Misconceptions in regards to the small, forgotten locations of the world abound in the present day. On the one hand, rural communities may be seen as idyllic, utopian communities the place life strikes slowly and individuals are pleasant. On the opposite, they are often seen as locations the place individuals are uneducated, “stuck in the past,” and never worthy of a lot consideration.
Such notions are unfounded and unhelpful. We will and should view the small locations of the world with each realism and in addition gospel hope. Small cities throughout the globe are damaged as a result of they’re crammed, even when sparsely, with sinners such as you and me. And these small, forgotten locations want wholesome church buildings.
That’s why we care about planting church buildings in rural communities the world over. However that is no simple process. What’s going to it take to see wholesome church buildings planted in rural communities? What are the distinctive challenges concerned?
To debate these items and extra, I’m excited to have David Pinckney with me on the podcast in the present day.
