Revitalizing Rural: Merging Churches for Cooperative Ministries that Bring Renewal

Abstract
The author researched changes in the Oklahoma Conference of the United Methodist Church as it pertains to church development, statistical changes, and the decline of the rural/small congregation churches. This project focuses on a two-point charge in rural Oklahoma who merged together through ministries and programs to bring about renewal and regeneration in an unlikely place. The project is to show that cooperative and collaborative ministry models can and will bring about revitalization, even in the rural and small churches where little to no investment is being made.
