Maple Trail is partnering with the Three Forks Baptist Association in Hazard, KY, to train pastors and church leaders how to respond in the economic recession.
On October 2-3, Maple Trail president Dr. Shane Garrison and associate consultant Jennifer Garrison will present two 3-hours sessions called Strategic Ministry in an Economic Downturn.
The economic recession of 2008-09 has devastated many families in Kentucky. The local church has an amazing opportunity to reach out to individuals and families with care, showing them the love of Christ and the benefits of belonging to a local body of believers.
This 3-hour seminar will offer strategic ministry ideas and insights for pastors and lay leaders in how to serve those most affected by the economic downturn.
The topics include:
- Biblical Response to an Economic Downturn
- Understanding Joblessness & Poverty
- Walking Alongside Hurting People
