This is an unscheduled Bonus episode this week that is a little longer form than the typical episode.
This is because it is packed with two topics that deeply affect rural ministry – Demographics and the “Rural Brain Drain”.
I also throw out a “What If” scenario for rural communities to combat the talent drain that is occurring. There are also ministry implications to this.
You will not want to miss this!
