Homelessness is a visible reality as we move around NYC and beyond. Many of us would love to help love the individual in front of us who is made in God’s image, but just don’t know how. Rescue Alliance are coming to speak to us from their years of experience conducting thousands of homeless outreach projects in partnership with churches, workplaces and neighborhoods. They are equipped to answer questions like: Is it safe to approach a homeless person? Should I give money to a panhandler? How can I help someone get off the street?
Come for a special three week equip series to hear from our brothers and sisters at Rescue Alliance. November 3rd, 10th and 17th at 8:45am. Coffee and Bagels will be provided.
Workshop #3: Ministry With vs Ministry To
Leader: Kareem Goubran
Description: In this workshop, Kareem Goubran, from Graffiti Church, will discuss the book “Upside Down Devotion” and the story of the Good Samaritan. In this interactive discussion, we will uncover what it looks like to come alongside someone and have an understanding that we are doing ministry with them rather than ministry to them and develop long term relationships with people who are street homeless in our community.
