It was a great privilege to gather with church planters from across Ireland (both the north and the south) in Rathriland, Northern Ireland on Wednesday, October 16 and celebrate what God is doing in the tiny villages and small towns of Ireland. I met lots of wonderful folks, renewed and deepened some friendships, and came away encouraged by how God is building his church throughout Ireland. I’m grateful for the Acts 29 Rural Collective, which is gathering rural and small-town pastors and church planters in Summits all around the world. It’s an exciting and important work. What a thrill it was for me to be able to give a talk, serve on a panel, and see 50 copies of my book A Big Gospel in Small Places given away!
