a part of the 2020 Summer Ministry Conversations
821 million people around the world – that’s more than 1 in 10 – can’t access the food they need to live active, healthy lives. So congregations in the Northern Illinois Synod are partnering with ELCA World Hunger to reach communities in need. You are responding to Jesus’ command to love our neighbors as ourselves. You are providing health clinics and microloans, water wells and animals, community meals, and advocacy. You are supporting smart, sustainable solutions that get at the root causes of hunger and poverty.
In this conversation, you’ll hear stories of the life-saving difference you’re making and how to share them with your congregation. You’ll see new resources to support your prayer, study, and hosting of activities and fundraising events. And you’ll have an opportunity to ask questions.
The Reverend Robin K. Brown serves as Director, Congregation Mission Funding in the Mission Advancement Unit of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, located at the Lutheran Center in Chicago, Illinois.
Pastor Robin’s focus is on ELCA World Hunger, a ministry made possible by the generosity of this church. She works with creative and courageous congregations of all sizes and shapes across the ELCA toward ending hunger and poverty here and across the globe. Her work involves meeting with clergy and lay leaders, preaching and teaching in congregations, contributing to the development of resources, and developing strategies to invite congregations into this work we do together as church.
In her spare time, Robin enjoys family and friends, books and beaches, singing and planting new gardens (so much more fun than weeding the old ones!)
