Ensure Successful and Transformational Outreach With The Kingdom Compassion Course...

Many people struggle to define and execute a successful strategy to meet needs.  This course teaches the Biblical foundations and executes on strategy that helps you avoid pitfalls and ensure effective ministry...even if you have limited resources!

Many meeting needs ministries actually hurt those they want to help and burn out those working in the ministry.  

Many people want to help others in need but they have a list of problems they encounter in the process....  

First, they often don't know where to start.  What kind of needs should I be meeting?  Which people should I be serving?

Second, they often struggle with setting up the ministry.  How will I get the resources?  How will I connect with the people who actually need the help?  How will I make sure the resources don't get taken advantage of?

Third, they don't end up getting the results they wanted.  Instead of seeing lives changed, they just see lines of people expecting handouts and have a handful of burned out workers who quit.  

What many don't realize is there are proven solutions to setting up a helping ministry that meets needs in a way that actually transforms lives, energizes workers, and is a kingdom success...

Here’s what people are saying...

Jim Bzdafka


River Christian Fellowship

"...comprehensive biblical understanding and the practical wisdom .."

Bruce's presentation was thoughtful,
biblical, and practical. He was able to put into words what many followers of Jesus struggle to define - that is, "What is the best and most helpful way the church can reach out practically with Christ's love to those in need without contributing to the causes of their neediness?" He outlined the differences about why people are needy and what are the best strategies to move toward them with the Gospel and meaningful assistance. The presentation gave our staff a common understanding of the issues involved in mercy ministry and aligned our approach. Bruce brings both comprehensive biblical understanding and the practical wisdom to help the church minister effectively to those in need in our communities.

"Just to let you know your work is bearing fruit..."

Yesterday morning, my first phone call was at 7:30 with a plea for help...financial. It did not take me as long to recognize what kind of call it was, one where you could actually hurt by helping! I was able to help her in ways that were amazing, because of the questions you had practiced with us in the seminar. Just to let you know your work is bearing fruit...
