Joretta L. Marshall

Eden Seminary

Summary

The Pastoral Care in Rural Congregations and Communities project will address pastoral leadership by exploring the unique gifts and challenges of practicing care in rural congregations and communities. Through collaborative research, writing and presentations, rural pastors, denominational leaders in rural ministry and academics in pastoral theology and town and country church leadership will identify: the current conditions of rural ministry, current practices of compassionate transformational care in those congregations and communities, areas in need of further development in those practices of care, and the character of pastoral leadership required to encourage and sustain those practices. The project will then present proposals for enriching the ministry of pastoral care, especially in the context of rural communities, through the development of a textbook and workshops for both rural church leaders and academics.
