Introducing Seeking Shalom, an eCourse on how reimagining charity can transform lives and restore communities.

Community-driven and video-based, Seeking Shalom will equip leaders to change the charity paradigm in their church or organization.

Experienced online or through the app, Seeking Shalom diagnoses why charity is not working, builds a rich, biblical framework for understanding poverty, and invites practitioners to implement five principles that get us beyond meeting needs and into seeking shalom.





We know that charity is

not producing the results

that we long to see.


Seeking Shalom reveals

why and what to do about it.
