Hope for the City: Addiction

October 13, 2018

Hope for the City Seminars seek to promote the hope of the Gospel through the local church.  We believe that building healthy churches in the poorest communities is one of the great needs of our day.

We come together to discuss the topic of addiction and to equip the local church to minister to those with addiction. Addiction is destroying lives.  There are an estimate 60,000 addicts in Baltimore City and another 72,000 have died in the last year (nation-wide) through overdose. The need is real.

This is the city we’re called to love. We're asking churches and Christians in the Baltimore area to join us as we explore the topic of addiction and disciple-making among all people.

Speakers and Topics:

Joel Kurz: “What is Addiction?”
Stephanie Laferriere: “Addiction and 1-1 Discipleship”
Vic King: “How the Parachurch Serves the Church”
Rick Haynes: “Walking with the Grieving”
Dr. Mark Plaster: “The Opioid Crisis"
Dr. Louis Wilson: “Addiction and the Church"

Vision trips are great way to see what ministry at ONE HOPE looks like on a daily basis. Consider coming on a five-day vision trip to Baltimore where you will experience life with Garden Church Members, ONE HOPE Interns, visit future church planting sites and pray with us for the work the Lord is doing.
