This rural area does not boast a large population, but does not have a church representing the people.
Studies are showing that while rural areas do not typically grow much, they are in desperate need of gospel preaching churches who have a heart to be on mission and bring the Good News to their friends and neighbors. One benefit for KBC pastors who serve rural churches is the Bivocational Certificate from Clear Creek Baptist Bible College. This fully online degree works to theologically equip pastors who are not able to leave their context, but still desire to learn and grow in God’s Word. Perfect for rural church planters!
AMS Nathan Whisnant of the DMBA worked alongside his churches to identify this areas where a new church is needed.
