The best way to address community issues is through bottom-up solutions. This means that solutions should come from individuals who have experienced poverty themselves and have a deep understanding of the challenges faced by the community.

They discuss Kurt's personal journey from drug dealer to pastor, his decision to stay in his neighborhood and make a positive impact, and the mission of Bridge Builders. His mission is to inspire inner-city innovation and transform neighborhoods one block at a time. Join us for a thought-provoking conversation on real people and real talk.
