We resource, empower and partner with rural churches through training, mentoring and coaching so they can enhance their presence in, and help strengthen, their communities. The strategy works best when church leaders partner with other community leaders and stakeholders.
We are determined to help our neighbors in rural communities because it is in those communities where poverty and hunger have gained a devastating edge. For instance, there are approximately 250 consistently poor counties in the United States — 244 of those are rural. Such poverty traps children in a cycle that prevents them from receiving quality education, nutrition and health care. We find that unacceptable and will continue to work tirelessly to bring positive change to rural communities throughout the United States.
