Join us for a Small-Town
What Others Are Saying . . .
“We want and need to be encouraged in ministry by those who understand our situations, have experienced our challenges, and share our joys. RHMA offers just such encouragement and training for small town and rural church leaders. The conference serves as a great opportunity to develop regular relationships with pastoral leaders in similar settings, and to receive training targeted for the special needs, concerns, and opportunities of churches that are the backbone of North American Christianity.”
Bryan Chapell Stated Clerk, Presbyterian Church in America (PCA); former small-town pastor; longtime president of Covenant Theological Seminary; author, including “Christ-Centered Preaching” and “Christ-Centered Worship”
“My experience is that there is nothing like RHMA’s Small-Town Pastors’ Conference. It’s rare indeed to have such focus, purpose, fellowship, and encouragement.”
Kent Hughes Senior Pastor Emeritus, College Church, Wheaton, Illinois; conference speaker; member, RHMA’s Board of Reference; author, including “Liberating Ministry from the Success Syndrome”
Looking ahead . . .
Lord willing (and coronavirus abating), we are on schedule for our Lancaster, Pennsylvania, conference September 30 — October 2!

We regret that the coronavirus forced us to again cancel our annual Illinois conference. In lieu of that, we put together (with the help of past conference speakers) eight weeks of encouragement for small-town pastoral couples. They can be accessed here, on our Facebook page, and on Twitter.
P.S. And to answer two common questions . . .
(1) There is no cost to view the sessions
(2) There is no registration required
April 19-21, 2021 – Morton, Illinois . . .
“If you’re a pastor in a small town or pastor in a small church and feel like no one really understands what’s going on in your life, this conference is for you. The atmosphere is warm and contagious. The teaching is quality! The people are authentic and God greatly strengthened my heart when I was there. I highly recommend the RHMA conference.”
Chip Ingram President and radio teacher, Living on the Edge; member, RHMA’s Board of Reference
