40th Annual Rural Ministry Conference

Feb 8, 2021 | University of Dubuque Theological Seminary

40th Annual Rural Ministry Conference

Engaging and Ministry with Cultural Traditionalists

We live in a deeply divided society with divisions along political, social, cultural, urban/rural lines. This conference will be helpful for pastors who see these divisions in their communities and congregations and are looking for ways to minister to all people.

Keynote Speaker Rev. Dr. Tex Sample will explore this division by looking at a key demographic, cultural traditionalists. Cultural traditionalists are the largest demographic in rural America and one of the largest in the country. This demographic is not limited by age, gender, or denomination.

Rev. Dr. Richard J. Shaffer Jr., former Assistant Professor of Ministry and Associate Dean at the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary, will be leading the Rural Ministry Conference Bible Study. Skip has been an integral part of the seminary’s successful lay pastor education program and continues to teach classes online each year.

The 40th Rural Ministry Conference will be held via Zoom on Monday, March 8, 2021.
