Join Evan and me for a great FREE seminar that will make your efforts to help those who are struggling with poverty be much more effective. The seminar called “When Helping Hurts” is from 9 AM to 2 PM on Saturday, November 4, in the Ministry Center at the “Z” campus at 1067 Rainer Drive, Altamonte Springs, FL 32714. Evan Smith, Director of Faith Partnerships with Community Resource Network, will lead us through Dr. Brian Fikkert’s life-changing encouragement and strategically sound principles that make it possible to alleviate poverty without hurting the poor.. . and ourselves. Understanding the foundational principles explored in “When Helping Hurts” is crucial for all of us who hope to serve effectively through the Community Resource Network.
I don’t know about you, but I NEED this information! Why? Because I want to know what the best thing to say and do is when I see someone holding a sign that says “HUNGRY or “JUST LOST OUR HOME!” or “PLEASE HELP!” I want to know how to bless someone more profoundly than just handing them a Ziploc with Kleenex, a granola bar, and a water bottle inside. And, honestly, I want to know how to keep my heart tender toward those who have real needs while recognizing others who have figured out a way to get my money without outright stealing it. If you, too, would like to be better equipped to handle these kinds of challenges and opportunities that God brings your way through the people He puts in your path then come spend time with Evan, me, and lots of other people who want to get better at making life better for everyone!
You can get more details and register here. We want to be sure we have a place for you to sit! Lunch will be provided.
Can’t make it that Saturday? Sign up to take the course with Dr. Brian Fikkert, author of “When Helping Hurts” at this amazing Serve the City Conference being held January 26 and 27 in Winter Garden, FL!
