Frequently Asked Questions

Who is Rural Connect for?

Rural Connect is an initiative of the national church to help support rural churches.  However, city churches that wish to partner with rural congregations are welcomed to be involved.

How will sites be selected?

The plan is to roll out one hub and three satellite boxes to each region to start.  Our first phase will see three regions selected and three hub churches identified.  We will be receiving applications for hubs and then consult with the Regions about the final placements.  Check the "How Can We Get Involved" page to download the Hub Application.

What is the cost?

For satellite churches, the rental of the satellite boxes will be $50, plus the bandwidth required for a service (currently estimated at under $20).  The hub church will usually charge a fee for their services, but the total cost is estimated to be below the regular pulpit supply fees.
