Missouri Rural Churches Project and the invisibility of rural churches

This project was a longitudinal study of approximately 500 rural churches in Missouri. The same congregations were surveyed in 1952, 1967, 1982, and 1998-99. In addition, six of the 99 rural townships in which these churches are located were the subject of in-depth field studies. The findings, published on the website of the Hartford Institute for Religion Research, show how the research findings challenge the stereotypes of rural churches.
