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 Senior Pastor, Grace Presbyterian Church, Peoria, Illinois;
conference speaker; author, including “Christ-Centered Preaching” and
“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 . . .
Unfortunately, the coronavirus has forced us to cancel both conferences and both seminars for this year. Lord willing, they will be back on schedule in 2021 — and many, if not most, of the speakers are still able to come. Stay tuned!
April 20-22 – Morton, Illinois . . .
October 1-3* – Lancaster, Pennsylvania . . .
*To those who have attended previous Lancaster conferences, those dates are correct! Host church scheduling conflict has moved our conference to Thursday evening though Saturday noon.
“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
