Theme: Flourishing: Land, People, and Community
This year’s conference will take place in conjunction with the 7th Quadrennial Gathering of the International Rural Churches Association (IRCA). This will be a wonderful opportunity to meet and converse with siblings in Christ from around the world who are engaged in rural ministry.
Together we will explore God’s intent that God’s creation flourish—land (wild and domestic ecosystems), people, community—in the midst of global climate change and in the wake of global pandemic and all the other myriad of challenges the creation and rural people and communities face. What does it mean to flourish, what does that look like, in the context of today’s realities? How can we act in concert with God’s desire in this regard?
