Webinar: Benevolence Ministry in an Economic Crisis

April 24 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am CDT

Free

Event Navigation

When people approach the church for financial assistance, leaders often recommend a developmental approach to benevolence, focusing on long-term, relational support, walking with them from a place of chronic poverty to a place of hope and flourishing. But what happens to that approach when a global pandemic and economic crisis drain our benevolence budgets and more people need help than ever? Join us for a conversation as we discuss practical ways for our churches and communities to provide the best help now while still building a framework for lasting relationships.

Join us Friday, April 24, at 10 a.m. CDT via Zoom for a panel discussion led by Matt Rusten, executive director of Made to Flourish.
