Missional Life Training Resources

Church Online


When working among the poor we desire that our compassionate hearts and the outpouring of our deeds bring healing, help and hope without harmful unintended consequences. We’ve attached a series of one page training PDF’s from resources like “When Helping Hurts,” “Toxic Charity,” and “Charity Detox,” designed to equip you with principles for working among the materially poor. These principles and case studies will equip you to serve among the materially poor in positive ways which increase human dignity, and foster empowerment instead of dependency.
