Reelfoot Rural Ministries is a mission agency founded by the people of the Memphis Conference of the United Methodist Church. RRM is located in rural Obion County, serving Northwest Tennessee and Southwest Kentucky.

This rural area surrounding Reelfoot Lake is an area of extreme poverty. In fact, Lake County has the lowest per capita income of any county in Tennessee and is consistently ranked as one of the lowest in the nation. The combined lasting effects of farm mechanization, limited factory employment, and a seasonal lake culture have left economic marks difficult to change.
