TURN LEFT

Here are a few ways you can bring life and hope to the neighborhoods of Evansville.

BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR

"The basic building blocks of neighborhoods are not programs; the basic building blocks of neighborhoods are neighbors." - Robert Lupton

 

Neighboring might mean developing a relationship with someone a few blocks from your house, or it could mean moving into a different neighborhood to bring support and vitality to the area.

For more information about neighboring, check out The Art of Neighboring by Dave Runyon and Jay Pathak and see Dave’s talk with a group of Evansville pastors.

SHARE THE FILM
