September 1, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Featured Guest: The Rev. Allen Stanton, Chief of Mission Integration and Outreach at the University of Tennessee Southern
Relaunch can be different for a small church or church located in a rural area. When our experiences and context are different, how can we prepare to respond? We want to hear directly from your experience. Join us this time to hear from Allen Stanton, author of Reclaiming Rural: Building Thriving Rural Congregations (Rowman & Littlefield, 2021) and an opportunity for us to answer your questions!
*All attendees will receive a 30% discount code for ordering his book directly from the publisher.
