About the Book
The landscape of rural America is changing. From the changing face of agriculture to changes in employment opportunities, to changes in family structure, small towns have undergone massive shifts in recent decades. Especially when it comes to the church, these changes have led some to believe that rural communities are a lost cause. Alan Stucky believes that the decline of rural churches is not inevitable. There is a harvest of people who are hungry for the Gospel in our rural communities. The harvest may not look like we expect, and the church will need to re-think some fundamental assumptions and practices in order to bring in this harvest. Nevertheless, if we are willing to follow God’s leading down a new path, the harvest is, indeed, plentiful.
