The Care Effect: Unleashing the Power of Compassion
Discover what happens when individuals and a church, corporately, begin to minister to their neighbor with intentionality, consistency, and passion. The Care Effect beautifully demonstrates how love of neighbor—the Great Commandment—is essential to gospel proclamation, not incidental to it. Walk the streets of New Orleans with a body of believers as they show love to neighbor. Be inspired to find a way to let your deeds of love be united with words so you too manifest the gospel to your neighbor.
