In small town ministry, you have to do things differently. One of the keys in a small town is good community relations with your church. A new business that opens up (on the previously-dying) town square is a big deal.
The new coffee shop in town is run by a couple of Christians. They have made it family friendly (ie. Smoke/alcohol-free), and extended specials geared at getting “Church-Folk” through the doors. They have reached out to the local youth groups to make it friendly for them to meet for small groups, etc.
Our town needs this right now. I hope the town realizes it.
How does your ministry cooperate with local businesses?
Anyone doing “outside the box” stuff in that area?
