Why US Churches aren’t serving the Poor Effectively

 

“We are far more successful in mobilizing churches in Togo than mobilizing churches in the United States. We are able to help hundreds of thousands of people in Africa and only a handful in the US. The reason is partly because the gap in the US church is often so big between the church members and materially poor. In a place like Togo, the church isn’t ministering to the poor, the church is comprised of the poor. The lack of that gap makes them better suited to minister to the poor both inside the church and outside the church.”
