This event is to introduce a new rural/small town ministry leadership partnership between Wartburg Theological Seminary, the synod and Sugar Creek Lutheran Church – Elkhorn.  The purpose is to offer a training resource for rural and small town ministry that builds faith, relationships, and service.

Join the Director for the Center for Theology and Land, Dr. Mark Yackel-Juleen, Director of Small Town & Rural Ministry for the Center for Theology & Land, on November 18 as he leads us through conversations about:

  • Small town and rural ministry and culture
  • The development and administration of multi-point parishes
  • Care of creation and theology and practice
  • Rural mission development

This conversation is designed to gather 3-4 leaders from each congregation including pastors, deacons and lay leaders.

At this gathering, we will discuss:

  • Congregational joys and concerns.
  • Obstacles and distractions.
  • Future collaboration and mutual support
  • The process and commitment
  • And what rural/small town gathering would be complete without a potluck supper!  Everyone is asked to bring a dish to pass!

Schedule:
Registration 1:30 pm
Program:  2:00 pm
Pot Luck Dinner & Conversation:  5:00 pm

Sugar Creek will provide the hot dishes. Please brung a cold dish or dessert to share!

Event is FREE. We are grateful to Sugar Creek Lutheran Endowment for covering the costs.
