Trailer Ç The Forgotten Church PDF by Û Glenn Daman Note This book was provided free of charge by Moody Publishers All thoughts and opinions are my own I get the feeling that I would have appreciated this book s contents had it been written by someone with a different mindset In general, it could be said that farthan most people I have an appreciation for the struggles of the rural ministry 1 Speaking personally, I regularly serve as a lay speaker within a rural church in my own denomination although it is a considerable drive from where I live In addition, I grew up in the country and regularly saw the situation of the rural church in the area of Central Florida where I grew up as well as in Western Pennsylvania where my father s family lived The problems discussed by the This was an excellent book I was pleasantly surprise that it covered so much sociological aspects of Rural America It was fascinating The author really gave a call for the uniqueness, importance and lack of support for Rural Ministry and Rural Missions Rural churches are often small churches, and its not just different numbers than urban or suburban communities, but rural communities have an entirely different culture Wonderful, must read The Forgotten Church is a book that definitely caught my eye recently I am enrolled in the Contenders Discipleship Initiative through Village Missions and am exploring the Lord calling me from my current job into the mission field and specifically being a pastor This was a fantastic read to understand the background of the rural church and the unique mission field that pastoring the church entails Also the challenges, both short term and long term that awaits a pastor called to the rural ministry There also will be the obscurity that may likely bring, but Mr Daman notes, success is measured by faithfulness and obedience p 25.
I found myself highlighting key verses or experiences stories that Mr Daman would share given his long service to the rural church A few passages that stood out to me What do you se Most of the advertising of churches comes from large churches in the city Many books are aimed to help urban churches grow Rural churches, especially ones with small membership rolls, are often ignored Glenn Daman shares how these churches are still important to God and His work in The Forgotten Church.
I am a member of a small, rural church, and I was curious what this book had to say Most of what I ve seen as far as church resources tend to require larger budgets andpeople than most of the churches where I live have In fact, this is the first book I ve seen in a long time that is specifically aimed to bring the rural church back into the minds of people Glenn Daman does a good job of telling the history of rural churches, and how they helped, and still help, th A wonderful read about rural ministry.
