WITH Conference for Churches in Ministry with the Poor Set for Aug. 26

Save the date! On Saturday, Aug. 26, the first WITH Conference will take place at Dunwoody United Methodist Church. The conference, sponsored by Action Ministries, the Housing and Homeless Council and the North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church, is designed for churches called to ministry with those struggling with poverty in local communities. The conference will be a time to learn what it means to be in ministry WITH the poor as opposed to “to the poor” or “for the poor” and will serve as an opportunity to network with others doing this important work; to learn from experts; to discover best practices; and to talk with other churches and agencies about partnering in the community to serve people in poverty. 

Topics will include:

  •        Serving immigrant and refugee populations
  •        Mentoring
  •        Hunger relief
  •        Asset-based community development
  •        Prison ministry
  •        Affordable housing
  •        Social enterprises
  •        Funding missions
  •        Best practices in local benevolence        

When? Saturday, August 26, 2017, from 9 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Registration opens at 8:15 a.m.

Where? Dunwoody United Methodist Church, 1548 Mt. Vernon Road Dunwoody, GA 30338
