Learn and engage in transformational ways with those in poverty going beyond food pantries. Rev. Brian Combs is a graduate of NC State and Emory University. While no degree was awarded, his most formative education came from attending integrated public schools, washing dishes at Camp Tekoa, thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail, and incarnating on the streets of poverty.
On the gritty corners downtown, he felt a calling to urban ministry after encountering the living Christ among the most cast aside and dismissed. Not wanting to be Jesus, but rather welcoming him in brothers struggling with substance abuse and sisters surviving with mental illness, he helped found Haywood St., a United Methodist mission congregation located in the homeless corridor of Asheville.
