In recent years I have been very encouraged and challenged by the work of Jared C. Wilson. You might only know him as the “other” author on Matt Chandler’s ‘To Live Is Christ To Die Is Gain’ but Wilson has written several great books independently. Jared seems to have clarity on Christian ministry at a time when some things have gotten a little whacky. Here’s some words of truth and encouragement on small town rural ministry. Obviously a topic that hits close to home for me and my church family — we’re out here in southeast Grayson County goiin’ “Hey, we’re a real gospel church too!” 🙂 God has called us to his work and is good to use us, no matter the population size large or small.
