Daisey Dowell; You know that you've been called to serve in the inner-city. However you sometimes wonder how you can effectively serve in a community whose culture may be quite different from the one that you have always known. This workshop will utilize discussion and case study illustrations to provide practical steps that we can take to better understand the culture, and engage more fully, with the community that we have been called to serve as urban missionaries.
In 1976 John Perkins began teaching a framework for ministry in low income communities known as The Three Rs: Relocation, Reconciliation, and Redistribution. Are they still a valid framework for us to use today, 41 years later? We think so. In this workshop you will learn how we at Lawndale Christian Health Center still utilize the The Three Rs as core values for guiding our work. Might The Three Rs help your organization? This workshop will help you ponder creating core values and clear frameworks for creating an effective ministry. James Brooks, Bruce Miller.
A lot has changed over the years with CCHF. In the early days, there were only a handful of organizations that aligned themselves as being committed to living out the gospel through healthcare among the poor. Now there are hundreds. These organizations create communities where like-minded, missionally-driven, medical disciples can walk out their faith with as many obstacles removed as possible. In other words, they are a collection of individuals who ideally live like the body of Christ while practicing whole person care for those who are poor. Join us as we discuss 4 areas of healthcare ministry and how you might find your place of service. Steve Noblett
