Presented at the 2004 conference of the Christian Community Development Association. For seventeen years, Mission Waco has been mobilizing hundreds of middle class students and adults toward more compassionate involvement among the poor through its weekend Poverty Simulations and Out-of-Country Exposure trips. This workshop will describe how carefully designed experiences confront many of the myths about the poor during the guided mining. It will also provide both guidelines from building this experiential training from a Christ perspective and other creative initiatives which stretch Christians who want to be more involved in ministry with the marginalized.
