My friends at Eastern University’s School of Leadership and Development (my alma mater), along with Bread for the World Institute and Asbury Seminary have launched a great new “open source curriculum resource” at evangelicaladvocacy.org, aimed at providing “the best collection of diverse theological and intellectual materials to foster dialogue, discussion and engagement in Christian global poverty advocacy, especially related to U.S. government assistance.”
It looks like a treasure trove of great stuff, grouped into four modules featuring articles, videos, and even sample syllabi:
- Theology of Poverty
- Christians Engaging Government
- Government Initiatives Against Global Poverty
- Advocacy on U.S. Government Foreign Assistance
If you’re interested in mobilizing your church to advocate on the issue of global poverty from a Christian perspective, or if you’re just wanting to learn more about these issues, this will be a great resource. Carve out a chunk of time and plan to spend it looking through evangelicaladvocacy.org.
