Shared Community Workshop
Friday, March 21, 2014 (180 reads)


There will be an important event for ministers, church staff/volunteers involved with benevolence/mercy ministry, and generally for anyone wanting to think more carefully about ministry to the poor, homeless, and others in need in Birmingham. On April 30th, we'll have a number of churches, shelters, and other organizations come together for a day-long workshop to talk about the needs of the poor and homeless and Birmingham. This particular gathering will focus more so on immediate needs than systemic concerns. 

The event is not being put on by anyone in particular; it really is a shared, community effort. So we'd love for you to join us, bring questions, and offer your own insights. We will have panels of representatives, plenty of time for Q&A, and plans for future gatherings. Let us know you will be attending by signing up below:
