Join Grace University and eMERGE Network in welcoming Mark Weber from PovertyCure to the Burkholder Conference on Global Engagement. This special night is designed around business people and community leaders interested in taking business beyond mere business–who want to make a difference locally and globally. Christ calls us to solidarity with the poor. but this means more than assistance. It means seeing the poor not as objects or experiments. but as partners and brothers and sisters–as fellow creatures made in the image of God with the capacity to solve problems and create new wealth for themselves and their families. At a practical level. it means integrating them into our networks of exchange and productivity.
