In Person

Add to Calendar 2023-10-14 09:00:00 2023-10-14 14:30:00 America/New_York Helping Without Hurting Seminar Lunch will be provided. 3645 Orange Ave NE, Roanoke, VA 24012, USA


What is poverty? Is it just a lack of material goods or is it deeper than that? What does the Bible say about poverty?

Join us for a Helping Without Hurting Seminar where we will tackle these very questions and more. Through short videos, small and large group discussions, and input from local ministry leaders, you will explore topics such as:

  • Causes and definition of poverty from a Biblical perspective
  • Four relationships that are broken in each of us and the stages of change
  • When to use relief, rehabilitation, and development in ministry
  • Differences between needs-based and asset-based development

This seminar is ideal for church deacons, for the benevolence team, for missions leaders, and for anyone who has a burden to bring hope to the hurting. The seminar will be facilitated by Friendship House Roanoke using the materials of When Helping Hurts (Fikkert & Corbett).

We will meet at Parkway Church on the Mountain on Saturday, October 14, from 9 am to 2:30 pm. Registration includes lunch.

This event is free to all thanks to the generosity of Parkway Church.  If you would like, you may leave a donation for Friendship House Roanoke when you register.
