This November I got to host around 25 visitors to the Rio Grande Valley, and we had a meaningful and well-spent time together. The purpose of this group is to learn from other “practitioners” about ministry in rural settings in the U.S. We share ideas, and see examples of ministry at work. Each year we meet at different TFH sites, and I was truly blessed to have these people “in my home”.
Within CBF life, this group is named “TOGETHER FOR HOPE”, which has now been in existence for over 20 years. Some of the members represent CBF, but many are from other organizations, churches, or denominations. This organization is open to anyone who would like to attend the annual meeting.
