I have been blessed to spend the last 20 years of my life in rural church ministry. God has greatly blessed our multisite faith community —

Now, I have been given a great opportunity to help others on the same path of rural ministry through a resource-sharing platform called RePlant Hub and to foster a rural community through a new venture called The Rural Pastor Podcast with special guest Mark Clifton!
