"All Things Made New" Banquet (Lunch & Dinner option)
Thursday, October 12th
You're invited! Join us for LUNCH AT NOON OR DINNER AT 6:00pm and hear our special guest speaker: Bob Lupton. You will also be able to enjoy live testimonies and hear important updates from VRM staff.
BIO: Bob has invested over 40 years of his life in inner-city Atlanta. In response to a call that he first felt while serving in Vietnam, he left a budding business career to work with delinquent urban youth. Bob and his wife Peggy and their two sons sold their suburban home and moved into the inner-city where they have lived and served as neighbors among those in need. Their life’s work has been the rebuilding of urban neighborhoods where families can flourish and children can grow into healthy adults. Bob is a Christian community developer, an entrepreneur who brings together communities of resource with communities of need. Through FCS, he has developed two mixed income subdivisions, organized a multi-racial congregation, started a number of businesses, created housing for hundreds of families and initiated a wide range of human services in his community. He is the author of several books including the widely read, Toxic Charity, Theirs is the Kingdom, Renewing the City, and the widely circulated “Urban Perspectives”, a monthly reflection on the Gospel and the poor. Bob released a brand new book in July 2015 titled, Charity Detox which draws on his many decades of experience, and outlines how to structure programs that actually improve the quality of the life of the poor and disenfranchised. Bob has a Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Georgia. He serves as speaker, strategist, and inspirer with those throughout the nation who seek to establish God’s Shalom in the city.
