“Hinton Rural Life Center’s commitment to helping small and rural congregations take Next Steps toward fruitful and vital ministry has been a wonderful partner for our District Strategy.”

Bishop David Graves, Alabama West-Florida Conference

Chuck Salter

“I have had personal experience with the “Next Steps” process offered by the Hinton Rural Life Center.  Their passion for encouraging development of vital community ministry in rural churches is extraordinary and produces measurable results. Like MissionInsite, they believe an essential element of vital ministry begins with understanding your community.  Hinton Rural Life Center consultants and the Next Steps process provide a powerful tool to assist rural churches in creating a new missional future.”

 Chuck Salter, Missioninsite, President





Nathan Malone

   “Vic and Jim offer churches a wealth of information and experience, both their own and that of others.  They are adaptable to the needs of each congregation with whom they consult.  Most importantly, they share a deep desire to see congregations of all sizes be vital and fruitful for the mission of Jesus Christ our Lord.” 

Nathan Malone, Knoxville District Superintendent, Holston Conference
