FREE Community Screening | October 1st at 4:00 pm

Please join us on October 1, 2017 at Christ Fellowship for a community screening of the award-winning film Poverty, Inc. Featuring a live in person question and answer with the filmmaker, Michael Matheson Miller after the screening.  The screening starts at 4:00PM.

This film exposes the damage caused by the world’s most common charity and ministry model (in use since WWII), of working among the poor both internationally and locally; sadly we find almost all churches in North America employ this failed model too.
 
Could our compassion be crippling the very people we’ve set out to help?

About Poverty, Inc.

Since World War II, American churches and aid organizations have followed a standard charity model to serve the poor locally and abroad. But could our compassion be crippling the very people we’ve set out to help?

Poverty Inc., recipient of over 50 international film awards, draws from 200+ interviews across 20 countries, asking critical questions about the unintended dark side of this common charity and ministry model.
