For three days, we will CONNECT those who seek, or desire to give, encouragement, education, and empowerment in the work of reclaiming and restoring under-resourced communities.
Years ago, the Christian Community Development philosophy was developed by John Perkins while working among the poor in Mississippi in the '60s and early '70s. Decades later, a new generation of Christians is questioning how it will respond to the troubles of poor and under-resourced communities today. Immigration and refugee relocation have added a new layer to the situation. We find the most creative, longterm solutions are coming from grassroots and church-based efforts. The solutions are coming from the people who actually live and work within the poor communities. The solutions are coming from you.
Join us at CCD-Iowa Regional Conference to explore, learn, and be re-energized for pursuit of the greater good of all.
