Nearly 60 MILLION people live in rural areas in North America. That's 1 in 5 Americans...or about 19% of the US population. With your partnership, we are helping Independent Baptist churches and the gospel presence in these areas not just survive, but thrive. Hometown Hope Ministries exists to glorify Jesus Christ by developing spiritually vital churches in rural North America. We fulfill this aim primarily by assisting in the placement, and support, of pastors in small towns and rural churches that might otherwise have to close.
Hometown Hope Ministries, Inc. emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support Independent Baptist Churches, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. Established in 2021, we’re an organization driven by biblical doctrine, bold actions, and a strong commitment to the local church. Contact us to learn more and get involved.
Hometown Hope exists to recruit, equip, support, and coordinate with local Independent Baptist churches, and Independent Baptist Training Centers to locate missionary pastors that will go to rural churches across North America. As a Hometown Missionary Pastor, you will be an integral part of revitalizing a church and sharing the gospel with the community at large, seeking to build a strong Bible-believing, Bible practicing church, that is self governing, self supporting and self propagating.
By serving with Hometown Hope, you will be joining an organization dedicated to helping country churches, and one that is helping to preserve the Gospel presence in these communities across the United States.
We all know that it takes dedication to be a pastor, especially during these days. It takes a special dedication to answer the call to pastor a rural church. Pastoring is difficult work, but rural pastoring offers unique challenges.
America’s rural communities need trained and caring pastors who will willingly serve in places that may feel isolated. Anyone who has familiarity with rural ministry in America, realizes that there are many churches in these areas that have closed and many more that are struggling to stay alive. Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks.
