OTHER SERIES WITH Brian Fikkert
Do short-term missions without doing long-term harm. 

Helping Without Hurting in Short-term Missions is a video-based study from the authors of the bestselling book, When Helping Hurts—a paradigm-forming contemporary classic on the subject of poverty alleviation. Now, this stand-alone resource applies the principles of "helping without hurting" specifically to short term missions. 

This resource is ideal for Church leaders, missions pastors, and youth pastors who make short-term missions planning decisions and desire to prevent inadvertent harm as they enter materially poor communities. 

In order to get the most out of this study, you'll need to purchase the Leader's Guide and Participant's Guides for your group. Six of the eight units have video elements, but there are two units that your group will do during their trip. 

The Leader's Guide provides explanations of how to design STMs well in light of the principles of When Helping Hurts, practical examples from short-term trips to illustrate the key principles, suggested resources, and the content of the participant's guide with annotation and teaching notes to guide leaders as they facilitate sessions with participants.
