Description

GOOD INTENTIONS ARE NOT ENOUGH

Poverty is extremely complex. So is poverty alleviation. When low-income people seek help, they usually need more than just material goods; they need lasting change. This book helps you address both.

WHEN A LOW-INCOME PERSON ASKS YOUR CHURCH FOR HELP, WHAT DO YOU DO?

From the authors of When Helping Hurts, this practical toolkit contains principles for poverty alleviation in the local church context. With resources, tools, and scenarios to help you apply the book, it is an all-in-one guide to the critical parts of achieving lasting change:

  • Seeing the individual, systemic, and spiritual roots of poverty
  • Responding to immediate needs while pursuing long-term solutions
  • Mobilizing your church to walk humbly with low-income people

Designed especially for groups directly engaged with people seeking financial assistance, Helping Without Hurting in Church Benevolence will help teams, individuals, and even parachurch ministries tangibly demonstrate the love of Christ.
