Conversation with John, Peter and Mike Mather: From Charity to Empowerment

Download or listen to John and Peter's conversation with Mike Mather, the pastor of Broadway United Methodist Church in Indianapolis.

Their conversation centered on what truly innovative institutions can do to make the move from charity to empowerment and how the church can build a neighborhood by moving from serving the poor to ending their poverty. Supposing we thought about how to make our community better and we didn't come up with a program? What would we do? In the neighborhood, how do you see beyond needs and discover the treasures that are there? What is Christian service? How do you think about a church as a community member?
