It is impossible to alleviate poverty—in its fullest sense—apart from the local church.

In recent years, Christians have shown an increased commitment to helping the poor. But this renewed interest in poverty alleviation is doomed to fail if it is not rooted in the local church—God’s established means of drawing downtrodden people into a transformative relationship with himself. Emphasizing the priority of the gospel, Mez McConnell and Mike McKinley, both pastors with fruitful ministries among the poor, offer biblical guidelines and practical strategies for planting, revitalizing, and growing faithful churches in hard places—in our own communities and around the world.

Helpful book

I found this book helpful. Some very good insights into how people today view God. I liked the section on how different people have different personalities and gifts and individually may struggle to witness but together pooling gifts can be very effective
