Thank you for visiting our new Rural & Small Town Mission website. Our dream is to have an electronic resource for professional and lay church workers in rural and small town ministry settings. These resources will include identification of educational opportunities through gatherings at Saint Paul Institute for Education (SPIFE) or The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) District locations. This website provides an opportunity to learn about upcoming gatherings, registration information, downloadable printed resources for local use, and contact information. Our prayer is that you continue to join us via the Internet or in person for leadership training. In our partnership with LCMS World Mission, our prayer and dream is to assist every professional and lay leader serving in rural and small congregations with the desire to touch their communities with the Gospel. Let us know what your needs are and how we can network your rural ministry ideas. The Rural & Small Town Mission -SPIFE, Concordia, Missouri will continue to work through the LCMS districts to assist rural and small town congregations. Please contact us at email@example.com or phone 660-463-9400 or 888-463-5127.
