Poverty 101 conference to be held in NE Ark.

The Arkansas Baptist State Convention (ABSC) missions ministries team is partnering with East Side Baptist Church, Paragould, to sponsor the Poverty 101 northeast Arkansas regional conference.

The conference will assist those attending in understanding and ministering to those who live in poverty. The event seeks to shed light on generational poverty, while examining the culture and mindset of those who live in poverty. It will also explore the most effective ways to minister to the impoverished.

Conference material is based on the book “Bridges out of Poverty” by Ruby Payne and other sources. Leading the conference will be Mindy Jamison, who serves with the North American Mission Board and the Baptist Convention of Iowa in inner city Des Moines, Iowa, as the state church and community ministries consultant and the co-director of the Friendship Baptist Center for more than 12 years.
