Nov1For those living in an impoverished community, it is very easy to focus on the negatives such as poverty rates, low graduation rates and high unemployment. Together for Hope, CBF’s rural poverty initiative, is walking alongside more than 25 communities across the United States to focus on the positives, recognizing the assets and resources that each community already has. Practicing local asset-based community development as the ministry model, Together for Hope and its partners are using the resources available and finding other resources to strengthen the things that can unite communities rather than separate.

Give thanks to God for the resources that exist in our Together for Hope communities, like a blues festival or a pastor who feeds community members during a blizzard.

Pray for people living in Together for Hope communities as they work to create a better future for their children and themselves.

Pray for the counties where Together for Hope partnerships continue to develop:

  • Alabama - Perry
  • Arizona- Cochise
  • Arkansas - Lee, Phillips
  • Kentucky - McCreary, Owsley, Powell
  • Louisiana - East Carroll, Tensas
