From Dependence to Dignity

Most poverty alleviation efforts are rooted in a false “theory of change.” They misdiagnose the true goal of poverty alleviation and then propose faulty solutions. The gospel provides a radically different “theory of change,” one centered on union with Christ as he ushers in a New Heaven and New Earth. Brian Fikkert, co-author of the best-selling When Helping Hurts, will share from his sequel book to that ground-breaking work, presenting the promising potential of microfinance as a gospel-centered poverty-alleviation ministry. Learn how many churches are helping people transition from a place of unhealthy dependence to the biblical goal of dignity.
