Mission Effectiveness 101: Moving Beyond Benevolence
Explore ways to balance charity or relief work with initiatives that are relational and measure long-term impact. Participants will discuss how to move beyond charity and benevolence toward a balance of missions that includes betterment and development. The workshop will discuss mission from a United Methodist and Wesleyan perspective, what the Bible says about poverty, and asset-based development. This course provides a safe environment in which to explore how to understand diversity, the personal filter one takes into the field when serving, and serving with people from very different backgrounds.
