Toxic Charity: How Churches and Charities Hurt those they Help (And how to reverse it)
Rockford University, Fisher Memorial Chapel, 5050 E. State St., Rockford, IL 61108
Bob Lupton, Ph.D., has invested over 40 years of his life in inner-city Atlanta. In response to a call that he first felt while serving in Vietnam, he left a budding business career to work with delinquent urban youth. Bob and his family sold their suburban home and moved into the inner-city where they have lived and served as neighbors among those in need. As an entrepreneur and Christian community developer he brings together communities of resource with communities of need. Since founding the non-profit organization FCS Urban Ministries he has developed two mixed income subdivisions, organized a multi-racial congregation, started a number of businesses, created housing for hundreds of families and initiated a wide range of human services in his community. Bob is the author of five books and a monthly circulation. He will be speaking about his newest book, Toxic Charity: How Churches and Charities Hurt Those They Help (And How to Reverse It).
