Join us in Atlanta…

FCS has been working in under-resourced neighborhoods in Atlanta for almost 40 years. 

Three times a year, FCS welcomes leaders, innovators and practitioners from all over the country who come for two-days to learn about our model for community development. 

We would love to share our story and strategies with you. Come and learn from our founder Dr. Bob Lupton, president Jim Wehner and executive director Katie Delp, along with various FCS neighbors and staff. Experience historic South Atlanta, the neighborhood where FCS is currently working.

Tuesday, April 20 and Wednesday, April 21, 2021

Tuesday, 9:30a-11:00a. Have you read Toxic Charity? Are you leading a ministry or organization that needs to change its way of engaging those experiencing poverty?
