Yes, In Your Backyard And to the Nations (Audio)

By Staff, Nov 6, 2018
The book When Helping Hurts speaks of the tremendous opportunities that exist right in our own backyards to bring the gospel in word and deed to our low-income neighbors. What are some options for local engagement? How does learning to be faithful locally help prepare us for being faithful globally? Listen and learn strategies for applying the good news of the kingdom to our own lives, to the communities in which we live—and beyond. 

Listen as Brian Fikkert, president of the Chalmers Center and professor of economics and community development at Covenant College, discusses how to live out the gospel in your backyard and to the nations.

This seminar was recorded live at the 2017 PCA Global Missions Conference in Dallas. You can listen to additional seminars on MTW's SoundCloud station.
