I'm trying to start a Christian band (I play bass). I'm in a pretty rural area without a centralised way to converse with other Christians. Wondering if anyone has any experience with starting a band in a similar situation. Thanks...God bless.

With so many options available to communicate some "bands" (usually 2-3 guys) utilize the internet. One could record a riff and send it to the next in line and add their part, or discuss changes. And having group discussions (perhaps on Skype) to rearrange parts.
Of course this requires each member to have at least basic recording equipment, which isn't too difficult to obtain since most of it can just plug into a pc or laptop. Basically have the right software and learn some basic editing.

It's either that or go the old fashioned route and post ads looking for band members to meet for actually normal practice sessions.

Search you local churches and music shops.
Just remember one thing. We don't need more people making Christian music, we need more Christians making good music.

People play music together from around the world, here’s some folks who are playing a song from multiple different locations. With today’s technology distance doesn’t have to be a issue.

I started the BBBC Band 50 years ago. I am the one next to the drummer in the picture below. We all lived in the same neighborhood -- in rural areas it is a bit harder,

Just throwing this out there since you didn't specify, How about the worship team at your church?

Do you know of a volunteer group in your area that helps to organize local events? I'm in one and we love when people reach out to us.

You can "try" this link. May have to sift through it, to find what you're looking for. As it seems kinda secular. But? It's music! G'luck!

You're a Bass player.... well in time you will have all kinds of bands and musicians asking to play with you.
Real Bass players (not guitar players filling in) are hard to find. Keep at it!

In a similar situation to wanting to find new musicians (Christian preferably) - but I'm not into the 'wet' stuff. I want grit. In the UK I'm afraid but send me a message, be cool to chat.
