As I write this, Audrey (who is my wife for those who don’t know) and I are headed to Phiadelphia for the Praxis Gathering. Praxis is an annual gathering of hundreds of church planters and theologians from around the country, who come together to worship, and learn best methods and practices for forming new and pioneering ministries.
I want to let you all know about the Praxis Gathering Conference in Philadelphia next month! I’m honored to present at this year’s event, and will have the opportunity to share about neighboring in small town and rural ministry contexts.
Earlier this week, Baptist News Global (BNG) broke a story about small-town Pastor John Crowder, who vigorously advocates cell phone use in worship.
I would like to encourage small town churches, and female pastors in particular (Virginia Baptist and otherwise), that you are significant stakeholders in the Kingdom. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Smaller churches present unique challenges. Come to the Smaller Churches Seminar at Columbia Theological Seminary’s Center for Lifelong Learning, and get training tailored to you!
