One of the oft forgotten places relating to church planting is the rural areas just outside or far from cities and regional city centers.

Plano Kentucky represents this well. With over 2,600 households and only one SBC church, this area not only has the population for more evangelistic churches, it is growing! Just miles from Plano is Bowling Green. This regional city is the fastest growing city in Kentucky, hosts Western Kentucky University, and is seeing an influx of international residents coming from all over the world. If you or your church feels called to plant a church in a rural area that is only minutes from the ministry of a small city, please reach out to AMS John Mark Toby. He, along with the church planting staff at the KBC are ready to provide you with more information, pray with you, and work to pull together a strategic team along with your sending church to reach this area with the Good News of the gospel.
