Many denominations suggest leadership and committee structures for its churches but not all congregations thrive in the same type of organization. Rural congregations may need frameworks that take into consideration rural perspectives and ways of life. This three-week course offers laity and clergy the opportunity to explore their unique positions in rural leadership, how to discern how their church operates best, and how to rethink leadership for a new day. It will acknowledge that clergy often are appointed to rural churches and feel as if they have to “fix” the structure, but end up causing harm. On the other hand, rural laity may have trouble explaining how they work to clergy not familiar with their lives and culture.
