An audio recording  of this month’s Rural Ministry Colloquium, Evangelism for the Rural Church, is now available for download via iTunes U.
Hear Tim Reaves, a Duke Divinity School graduate and lead pastor of the thriving, three-point Bladen United Methodist Charge in rural eastern North Carolina, speak about practical, faithful, and fruitful ways for small churches to share Christ with their communities.
The Bladen Charge  is comprised of Bethlehem, Live Oak, and Windsor United Methodist churches. Reaves is in his 14th year of serving these congregations. 
Rural Ministry Colloquia  are monthly lunch-time gatherings at Duke Divinity School where a pastor, scholar, layperson, or practitioner is invited to address an issue related to rural life or ministry and then lead a discussion on the topic. These events are open to the public.
