Description:

Already with decades of experience speaking prophetically into the charged racial climate of the American south, John Perkins began to see a need for organized thinking and collaborative imagination about how the church engages urban ministry. And so the Christian Community Development Association (CCDA) was born, with Wayne Gordon an immediate and enthusiastic participant. Nearly thirty years later CCDA’s eight key components of community development still set the bar for how churches, parachurches and nonprofits engage cities with the whole gospel. RelocationReconciliationRedistributionLeadership DevelopmentListening to the CommunityChurch-Based Development A Wholistic Approach to MinistryEmpowermentIn Making Neighborhoods Whole Perkins and Gordon revisit these eight commitments and how they've played out in real communities, even as they scan the horizon of urban ministry to set a new tone. With profiles of longstanding and emerging community development ministries, they guide a new conversation and empower disciples of Jesus to seek the welfare of their cities to the glory of God.
