How Churches Can Help The Poor

Nigel Ring conducted an interview with Steve Oliver who heads a task force that explores how the 600+ churches of Newfrontiers can serve the poor in the more than 50 nations in which we are based.

Steve believes it is vital to provide temporary relief for suffering – eg feeding the hungry. But, he also believes we must see that only the gospel can bring permanent transformation. Our goal is to see poor people saved, lifted from the bottom of the pile, and enabled to join us on mission.

Steve says your work with the poor is on track when there are people you have helped who can look you in the eye without feeling inferior and then become leaders themselves, enabled to help others.

Its an inspiring interview, and much good is being done in this area by many Newfrontiers churches.
