    Give a Fish, or Teach Them to Fish?: The Faith DriveRs of Charity vs. “Helping Others Help Themselves”

    Join us for a free two-part faith based session!

    Many faith based organizations serve the underserved populations in their communities—those who are disadvantaged, unemployed, the working poor, the food insecure, the homeless, and more. This lively session will dig deeply into the scriptural and philosophical drivers that determine how their service strategies impact the people who they desire to help. Panelists representing several active agencies across the state will weigh in on what they have seen that works, and what has opportunity to improve, as we collaborate locally and statewide to lift all segments of the population into a place of greater financial stability and security.

    We are also very happy to have Kelvin Boston as part of this session! Kelvin, Executive Producer and Host of PBS’ Moneywise, once stated “Faith based organizations will play an important role in securing Black America's economic future.” His Moneywise Empowerment Tour was started in 2006 is now “one of the leading African American Faith Based tours in the United States” serving over 50,000 people around the world! Before serving as our keynote speaker at the opening session of the conference, he will impart his knowledge and experience related to faith and finance.

    Facilitators :Barry Altland (Head, Heart and Hands Engagement Collective) and Kelvin Boston, (Moneywise)

    With additional panelists - Brad Beatty (Heart for Winter Haven), Pastor Scott Billue (Matthew's Hope), and Eric Gray (united Against Poverty) 

    This is a free session held in conjunction with FPP 9th Annual Statewide Training Conference.
