In this talk, part of the Edmiston Center’s Grimké Lecture Series at RTS Atlanta, the Rev. Alton Hardy speaks on “The Local Church: The Cost of Revival in Rural and Urban America.”

How can we truly walk in partnership with those we are called to live alongside?

Rural and urban America present some of the most complex challenges to church planters today. This lecture gives insight into rural urban American communities, and how the local church has, can, and should raise up to partner and care for them.

Alton Hardy is the founder and pastor of Urban Hope Community Church in Fairfield, Alabama. He is an ordained teaching elder in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).
