Rev. Dr. Alan Rice, executive director of Rural Faith Development Community Development Corporation and lead pastor of Crossfire UMC in Moravian Falls, N.C., will present "Firing Up the Foundry: Wesleyan Faith-Based Community Development." The discussion is part of the monthly Rural Ministry Colloquia Series, sponsored by the Thriving Rural Communities  initiative.
A thriving rural church is more than a fellowship for the faithful; it also can be a center of community transformation. Join us as we discuss the Wesleyan tradition of Christian community development and hear Rice’s experiences of leading missional churches in redemptive renewal.
This session will be from 12:25-1:20 p.m. on Jan. 14 in 059 Langford, Duke Divinity School. All are invited to attend. Lunch will be provided; no registration is required. For details, contact Rev. Jeremy Troxler .
