GFFC LAUNCH AND THE GLOBAL FUND FOR CHRIST GALA DINNER 2010

 

GBR is honoured to report that we had a successful launch on 18 November 2010 at the Sandton Convention Centre during our conference, and we hosted a gala dinner for the purpose of launching the Global Fund for Jesus. The launch took place during our first annual business conference which will take place in order to reflect on the activities of the previous year and to review and share plans for the year ahead. The conference was attended by a diverse group of GBR members and invited guests who represented various sectors of society.

The conference dealt with key issues affecting society today. Among other issues discussed were global wealth versus global poverty, and what governments, businesses, churches and civil society should do to address the issue of poverty around the world. The conference further reflected on how various sectors of the economy and can assist in achieving the Millennium Development Goals; particularly the alleviation of poverty and unemployment.
