"Helping Without Harming" Workshops
“When relief is merely a bandaid that alleviates the symptoms of poverty but fails to address the root causes, then it is illegitimate. Such assistance merely helps people to manage their poverty rather than to escape from it.” (Establishing a Church-based Welfare-to-Work Mentoring Ministry, by Amy Sherman)
This workshop trains and equips churches and organizations to address poverty and injustice both locally and globally.
Contact us to learn about scheduled workshops OR to plan your own.

Days of Encouragement
Days of Encouragement (DOEs) are held annually in many regions across Canada.
Participants worship together, share ministry stories, and learn from each other.
These events are offered to deacons, elders, caregivers, pastors, as well as any other persons who would like to be encouraged and equipped for ministry. DOEs are a wonderful way for ministry leaders to encourage one another and network, reminding everyone that you are not alone!
