TGC23 Pastoring Small Towns Event

From pastoring in total obscurity to managing post-pandemic political fallout, small-town pastors can find themselves ministering in places where they feel marginalized and forgotten. Join Ronnie Martin and Donnie Griggs as they acknowledge the difficulties facing those who are called to pastoring small towns and seek to encourage them in the gospel with practical help and enduring hope.

Small town life is quite different from life in a big city. There is not as much traffic. People recognize each other at the grocery store. Local sporting events carry a different cultural weight, and it may not be out of the ordinary to wait behind a tractor or get used to the smell of a nearby factory. These communities are unique, and pastoring here is an extraordinary task.

Ronnie Martin and Donnie Griggs are well-aware of this reality. In Pastoring Small Towns, their hope is to equip pastors and ministry leaders to take on the different nuances that come with pastoring smaller communities. They point out the cultural realities of these places and give pastors the tools to effectively engage their people with the Gospel.
