Rural & Small Town Mission webinars focus on the needs of rural and small-town congregations across the Synod. They help congregations consider new ideas for congregational life and efforts to engage the community. RSTM webinars are practical and relevant for ministry today, and they provide support and encouragement to pastors and congregational leaders.
