In the Lancaster, PA, area? Join HOPE International and Community Fellowship Church this Wednesday, June 20, at 7 p.m. for “When Helping Hurts,” a free live webinar with Dr. Brian Fikkert, executive director of the Chalmers Center for Economic Development and co-author of When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor … and Yourself.
In When Helping Hurts, Fikkert and co-author Steve Corbett draw on years of experience in international development to discuss common pitfalls Christ’s followers face as we seek to overcome poverty. They also detail practical strategies for developing sustainable solutions that empower the poor rather than hurting them.
In Wednesday’s webinar, Fikkert will draw on themes from the book and engage attendees to move beyond good intentions to concrete actions that can make a difference for those living in poverty. Moderated by Peter Greer, president and CEO of HOPE International, the webinar will be broadcast live at Community Fellowship Church (200 Bethel Drive, Lancaster, PA) and is free and open to the public. Unfortunately, we are not able to stream the event for those unable to attend in person.
