Pastors (of rural churches), how often do you attend your town's High School sporting events? I ask the question because in many small towns, HS sports is culturally very important. I've realized great things by simply attending from time to time - especially home games. You'd be surprised to know how many of your congregation attend these events, and I get introduced to new prospects all the time when I go. Not only that, it's much more enjoyable and "real" than sitting at home watching TV! Recreation and outreach...all at the same time! It's a "win-win" situation that I would highly recommend to any rural pastor.
