The Greatest Form of Poverty

Kevin Duffy wears a lot of hats at The Village Baptist Church in Fayetteville, North Carolina. One of those is Missions Pastor. Kevin has been serving there since 2005, and he has a lot of wisdom to share. He joins us to share about The Village Baptist Church’s “Face to Faith” initiative.

  • First, Face to Faith began out of the heart of a member of The Village Baptist Church. The church released a member to step into what God had put on his heart. When we do this, something powerful happens.
  • Second, context changes the way programs are implemented, but the gospel is the same. Face to Faith may look slightly different in different countries, but the goal and foundation is till sharing Christ’s love.
  • And finally, we can help kids and widows and the poor with clean water, food, medicine and schooling, but if we don’t share the gospel we’re missing the whole point. The greatest form of poverty is Spiritual Poverty. We have to remind ourselves of this every day.
