When a low-income person asks your church for help, what do you do next?

God is extraordinarily generous, and our churches should be, too. However, because poverty is complex, helping low-income people often requires going beyond meeting their material needs to holistically addressing theroots of their poverty.

Short and to the point, this tool provides foundational principles for poverty alleviation and then addresses practical matters, like:

  • How to structure and focus your benevolence work
  • How to respond to immediate needs while pursuing long-term solutions
  • How to mobilize your church to walk with low-income people

With practical stories, forms, and tools for churches to use, "Helping Without Hurting in Church Benevolence"is an all-in-one guide for church leaders and laypeople who want to help the poor in ways that lead to lasting change.
