Town & Country Ministries

Our mission statement is: “Bringing hope to rural people.”

Our purpose is to encourage pastors and laity to network with one another by sharing their stories of life in rural ministry; their highs and lows, their joys and worries, their celebrations and yes, their failures.

The purpose of the website would be Vitamin E – Encouragement, Empathy and Empowerment of the people serving in rural areas, building bridges of hope and disciplining one another as we serve.

Our desire is to offer a safe place where we can be real with one another and free from the fear of judgment. We are stronger together than alone and supporting one another is our earnest goal.
