June 28 Gathering: Guest Speaker Dina Andrews–Helping Lift People from Poverty


This Sunday at New Wineskins our guest speaker will be Rev. Dina Andrews, Director of the Circles Campaign of the Mid-Ohio Valley, Inc.

Circles® is a national initiative that seeks to empower individuals from all economic backgrounds to solve poverty in their communities. The Circles model started in 2000 as a way to increase the capacity of communities to address poverty by combining best practices in several disciplines, including community organizing, coaching, grassroots leadership, SMART goal setting, financial literacy, mentoring, peer-to-peer counseling and learning, and child/youth development.

Dina is an ordained Deacon with the West Virginia Conference of the United Methodist Church and serves as the Pastor at Stephenson United Methodist Church in Parkersburg, WV and is an Associate Staff Chaplain at Camden Clark Medical Center. She is a graduate of the Methodist Theological School in Ohio with a Master of Arts in Counseling Ministries and a Master of Divinity. She’s also an occasional guest and long-time supporter of the New Wineskins community!

Join us in the 167 Side Room of the Marietta Brewing Company this Sunday, June 28, to hear from Dina about how Circles® is helping people right here in the Mid-Ohio Valley and how to get involved!

Happy Half-Hour: 6:30pm

Conversation Begins: 7:00pm
