Local Church Is The Only Church in Town

Paskenta Flournoy Bible Church was losing hope. The church had no pastor, and the community had no other church. Then, someone remembered Village Missions.
A cowboy pastor meets his rural community where it is.

Cowboy Pastor: Love Is The Glue

Village Missionary Nathan Mudd finds that some of his “greatest preaching” is done in cowboy boots…and not always from the pulpit. As this cowboy pastor serves his rural community, he shows Christ’s love to them in the ways they understand best.

Reaching the Ends of the Earth: The Far-Reaching Power of a Country Church

The youth group at Pine Valley Community Church worked in unusual circumstances and demonstrated the power of a country church to reach unremembered places.

The Poor Widow

We often receive wonderful notes in the office.  One such note made me think of the story of the poor widow in Luke 21:1-4.   Dear Brian, I’m writing to thank you for sending “Country Matters.”  I love the stories–you see, my little country church was closed for many years until Pastor Paul and Mary Lou […]

Gut Check: a test or assessment of courage, character, or determination-Part 2

Remarkable results have occurred over the sixty years that Village Missions has served the Lord.

The Twin Mesa Bible Church is located near Kykotsmovi, AZ.  I tried to find the actual location of Twin Mesa on Google Earth, […]
