Required Reading:

When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor . . . and Yourself, February 2014, Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert

Reading the whole book is helpful, but at a minimum, please read Part 1 (Foundational Concepts For Helping Without Hurting) and Part 2 (General Principles for Helping Without Hurting).

Optional Reading:

Helping Without Hurting in Church Benevolence, October 2015, Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert

Short read!  This book builds on concepts introduced in “When Helping Hurts”, but offers a more specific, and practical, approach for churches.

Due to limited space, we ask that no more than two people from each church/agency register to participate. 

Please Note: This is a one-time registration! Registering for the learning cohort means you are registering for ALL 5-SESSIONS. Please double check the dates with your schedule to make sure you are able to commit. Thank you!
