Reflections of a Small Town Pastor
Engaging in God's Mission in Smaller Places
Urban, suburban and rural churches may have the same mission and engage in a
similar activities, but ministry in rural places is significantly different from ministry in the city. During thirty five years in rural ministry, Lee J. Smith found that the issues rural pastors face are not addressed in most seminary curricula or pastoral conferences.
Reflections of a Small Town Pastor offers theological and practical reflections on ministry in smaller places. From preaching and leadership, to becoming a part of the community, Lee offers insights for engaging in God's mission in smaller places. Lee's hope is that small town pastors and churches will benefit from his experiences and the result will be satisfying and fruitful service for the sake of the gospel and the glory of God.
