Keeping Country Churches Alive
Something is happening in North America. Small country churches struggle to pay their bills, to find pastors, to keep the doors open. Each year, hundreds of churches close their doors.
Sure, some of the people who attended those closed churches can drive to another church. But what about the people in that community who do not know Christ? Where will they turn in times of crisis? How will they hear of the love of Jesus Christ?
Village Missions will not let the country church fade away. Since 1948, we have been keeping country churches alive in North America. We place pastors in rural churches and help those churches get back on their feet. We care about the country church and are working to keep the church a vibrant and vital presence in more than 230 rural communities throughout North America. We’re here when crisis hits, when the community is searching for somewhere to turn for answers.
We believe that the church is central to keeping a Gospel presence in rural America, impacting Christians and unbelievers alike. We exist to glorify Jesus Christ by developing spiritually vital churches in rural North America and to keep country churches alive.
The goal of Village Missions is to provide a Christ-centered community church program capable of involving the entire population of a local community with worship services, personal contacts in homes, Sunday schools, home and group Bible studies, special youth and adult activities, Vacation Bible Schools, and other activities.
In order to accomplish this, Village Missions places spiritually qualified missionary-pastors in churches at the invitation of local rural communities. These missionary-pastors serve in a full-time capacity. We support the leadership through prayer as well as financial and other logistical assistance.
