Flourishing communities with Christians (w)holistically engaged.
We strengthen and inspire Christian Community Development practitioners for community transformation through equipping and connecting.
At CCDA we practice:
We believe that each person has something to gain and offer in community. Therefore, we monitor and calibrate power dynamics within our relationships and organizations as a means to achieve and maintain equitable mutuality.
We prioritize the diverse practitioners of Christian Community Development (CCD) work. To that end, the scope of gatherings, programs, and activities intentionally include, equip, and benefit CCDA members.
We believe that Scripture leads to authentic justice and equity, and to flourishing communities. Therefore, we gather together within diverse communities to explore Scripture for wisdom and guidance.
We include diverse cultural voices in our daily work and organizations. Therefore, to honor our valued diversity, we practice cultural intelligence to relate more effectively across cultural contexts and backgrounds.
We provide avenues to nurture long-term relationships among association members, changing the way we live, learn and love in our respective communities.
