We’re excited to announce that on November 17, 2018, we’ll be hosting our first Small Town Summit in Maine.

A Big Gospel in Small Places
The mighty, enduring gospel of Jesus Christ is God’s transforming power wherever it goes, in the biggest cities and the remotest villages. The purpose of our Summit on November 17, 2018 will be to consider how we can most fruitfully obey God’s call to minister this big gospel in the small places of Maine. What are the unique challenges and opportunities of small-place ministry? How does God mean for the gospel to shape both the content of our preaching and the contours of our ministry? Please join us to share your experience and to be equipped and encouraged.
