IRCA 2022 Round the World

On 7-8 March we gathered on ZOOM and shared 24 hours of celebrating rural people, places and ministries

Starting at the Rural Ministry Conference hosted by the Center for Theology and Land at Wartburg Seminary, Dubuque, Iowa, USA, the Zoom event circled the globe over 24 hours.

Prayerfully we stood and continue to stand alongside rural church leaders, learn from the wisdom of local speakers and share in their story and culture.
