Description

Current trends reveal, most Adventist churches approach the issue of poverty symptomatically rather than systematically and in recent years have a hands-off approach to addressing the realities of poverty in the local communities they serve. This paper seeks to explore and recommend creative ways in which the church can better serve its community by adapting redemptive and transformational strategies that will strengthen its role and function in the community; reconcile and engage secular partnerships without the occlusion of theological and non-theological differences in its approach to mission.
