What Every Church Member Should Know About Poverty

To help individuals and communities to overcome poverty, you first must understand poverty.  Then you must have a systematic approach that helps people create a stable foundation for holistic life process.

This study by Bill Ehlig of Missouri Street Church in Texas, provides a church leader’s perspective on Ruby Payne’s foundational insights into the mindset of people in poverty and how to help them see a path forward to a better life. The result is a study that will help church
members enter truly redemptive relationships with people in need.
