Event Description

"Poverty alleviation is the ministry of reconciliation: moving people closer to glorifying God by living in right relationship with God, with self, with others, and with the rest of creation." - Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert, When Helping Hurts

Join like-minded pastors and ministry leaders to consider and imagine the implications of integrating faith, work, and compassion ministry--not only in the life of the church but also in the life of communities where our churches are rooted and serve. The right relationships that Corbett and Fikkert identify in the quote above are fundamentally tied to the relational economics of everyday work: people having the opportunity to fulfill their calling by glorifying God through their work, and therefore being able to support themselves and their families. 

This lunch gathering invites you into conversation to explore what a practical application of this looks like. We will also hear from Daniel Harrell about his experience with the Innove Project, and from Art Erickson about his journey from business, to youth ministry in parachurch and church contexts, to the founding of Urban Ventures.
