HELPING COMMUNITIES THRIVE WHILE SHARING THE LOVE OF JESUS

In its simplest form, community development is responding to the needs of a community in a way that dignifies them, enriches their lives, and conveys the love of Jesus. Your skills in areas like water projects, farming, animal husbandry, financial training, social work, health education, or engineering can transform communities and create opportunities to share the good news of Jesus.

When I first started, we were using a services-delivery model. We would come in and do things for people. But now we use an empowerment model so people learn how to take themselves forward. One day, when we’re gone, they’ll still be strong.” .
