Presbyterians encouraged to engage with ministry prior to and during the 2018 General Assembly
The genesis of the Hands & Feet initiative came from Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Stated Clerk, the Rev. Dr. J. Herbert Nelson, II, after his experience at the 222nd General Assembly (2016) in Portland. He had never seen so many homeless people in one place.
“It was baffling to me,” he said. “I really got a chance to understand the depths of homelessness through a different set of eyes.”
