Preaching Station

A location where worship services occur. These services may take place on a regular or an irregular basis. The place of meeting may or may not be set apart for church services on a permanent basis. Preaching stations are frequently located in areas of mission development. They may be served by one or more members of the clergy with pastoral responsibility for a region of mission development. Historically, preaching stations have been used in both domestic and overseas missions.
