Events

with Dr. Brian Fikkert

Join Dr. Brian Fikkert to learn about the role churches have to play in gospel-centered poverty alleviation among the world’s poorest people.

In Togo, a country where 62% of the population lives in poverty, grassroots churches are being trained to set up savings groups among the rural poor. Experience how these ministries of reconciliation are tackling the roots of poverty in their communities by equipping the poor to empower themselves.
