GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) – Mel Trotter Ministries’ Season of Hope is an annual event hosted by Mel Trotter Ministries and is designed to create a safe venue for conversations that challenge us as community members to better understand the issues around homelessness, the ways out of it, our role in it, and God’s heart for those who are poor.
This year, Bryan Stevenson, will be the key note speaker.
Bryan Stevenson is the founder and Executive Director of the Equal Justice Initiative and one of the most acclaimed and respected lawyers in the nation.
