about the luncheon

We’ll explore the role of empowerment in poverty alleviation with Brian Fikkert, author of When Helping Hurts.

Our Spring Fundraising Luncheon is an opportunity for us to learn together how we can help the poor in ways that promote dignity and bring sustainable change within communities. Brian will lead us in this thought-provoking discussion and its application.

Join us as we continue to empower the world’s most fragile and underserved communities. 

Brian Fikkert is a Professor of Economics at Covenant College and the Founder and President of the Chalmers Center for Economic Development at Covenant College. Brian received a Ph.D. in Economics with highest honors from Yale University, and a B.A. in Mathematics from Dordt College.

Specializing in Third World Development and International Economics, Brian has been a consultant to the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank, and the United States Agency for International Development. He has published articles in both leading academic and popular journals and has been a contributor to several books, including When Helping Hurts, From Dependence to Dignity, and Church in Hard Places: How the Local Church Brings Life to the Poor and Needy.
