346 – My Final Challenge to Rural Church Leaders

In this final episode of the Small Town Big Church Podcast, I share my parting challenge to small town and rural church leaders.  I remind you of your strategic and vital calling to serve in relatively small places.  I challenge you to believe God for BIG things in small places.  I implore you to embrace change and not resist it as the church heads into a new and exciting future.  And finally, I sign off by thanking the many people who have had a part in this journey over the past eight years.
