“Thinking Biblically About Homelessness”
Live Location: Southwest Hills Baptist Church, 9100 SW 135th Ave. Beaverton, OR 97008
Remote Location: Use the form on the right of this page on the evening of the event.
Come join Eric Bauer, Executive Director of the Portland Rescue Mission, and the Ambassadors Forum for another interactive night of in-person training so you can better understand and defend your faith! We will discuss what the Bible has to say about homelessness and how that differs from the approach the world is taking. Come learn why this issue will never be resolved by failing to recognize and address the root cause, and learn what you can do to truly love and help those in our community impacted by homelessness.
