Connecting with Others - Changing the Community - Episode No. 91

In this episode of Means of Grace, Jesse Enniss and Kim Ingram talk with the Rev. Dr. Cathy Davis and the Rev. Dr. Heather Kilbourne about their DMin learning connected to community engagement. Our guests introduce us to Asset Based Community Development and Community Organizing as similar ways to connect disciples with the needs of the community in order to create change. The conversation is rich with examples of how leaders can encourage their congregation to turn outward to their community, identify needs, and build partnerships.
