This practical and theological guide to rural ministry comes from the Arthur Rank Centre, the national resource and training centre for rural churches of all denominations. It runs courses and conferences in rural ministry and this practical book has emerged from its many areas of expertise and experience. Focused especially on the needs of those - lay and ordained - who already help to run local churches in rural areas, those preparing for ministry in such a context, and for those who provide pre- and post-ordination training, this welcome volume explores: pastoral skills for rural ministry, leadership models for rural contexts, multi-church ministry, developing lay ministry and leadership, the distinctive values of rural churches, vocational pathways for rural ministry, whether mission be explicit or implicit, and appropriate continuing ministerial education for rural contexts.Illustrated with real life examples and supported by theological reflection throughout, this will be essential reading for engaged in rural ministry.
