Poverty Cure - Challenge your approach to charity & missions

Event Date: 
Thursday, September 13, 2018 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Save the date for the Launch of the Poverty Cure series with Andreas Widmer, author of The Pope and the CEO,tech entrepreneur, former Swiss guard to St. John Paul II.

Charity that hurts: Nearly a billion people around the world live in extreme poverty. The love of God stirs us to help, and yet both private and public aid often goes awry.

In this session, several voices from the developing world discuss some common pitfalls of humanitarian assistance, and then point the way toward strategies that connect our good intentions with things that actually work—relationships focused on unleashing the creative capacity of our fellow man, human beings made in the image and likeness of God.
