The June 2017 issue of Reaching Rural America for Christ shares insight into teaching the faith to adults in congregations. This task should be balanced between normal classroom learning and the learning that happens when individuals share life together and build up one another in Christ.
It also should be intentional and multigenerational, offering learning opportunities for children at the same time they are offered for adults.
The newsletter also offers information about ongoing free monthly webinars and other events.
