PennDel is partnering with Convoy of Hope’s Rural Compassion to come alongside our rural pastors with a renewed vision for reaching our rural areas for Jesus.

This free two-day event involves:
Three workshops focused on how to connect with your community
– A blessing room of resources for pastors
– A distribution of donated goods for you to bring home and bless your rural community

Round table discussions will give you the opportunity to interact with other pastors from rural communities. It is the desire of Rural Compassion that in 24 hours together, your ministry will be changed and that the workshop will be a catalyst to start a transformation and make an opportunity for a long and prosperous future in your rural community.

This event is limited to 20 pastors and the details are below.
