Immersion Registration Is Now Open!
Participants in this year’s Immersion, July 8-13, 2018, will enjoy in-depth training in the Christian Community Development philosophy, combined with opportunities to visit CCD ministries and dialogue with veteran practitioners. Chicago serves as our primary host city for the Immersion due to the number and variety of diverse CCDA ministries available for site visits and the opportunity to hear from from Daniel Hill, Dominique Gilliard, Sandra Van Opstal, Michelle Warren, and some of the founders of CCDA, such as Wayne “Coach” Gordon and Mary Nelson. This week long event offers dynamic training sessions in CCDA’s 8 principles, as well as the chance to experience CCD philosophy in action in diverse multicultural, multiethnic Chicago neighborhoods including Little Village, Lawndale, and Chinatown. Don’t miss the opportunity to be inspired, trained and connected at the 2018 Immersion!

Testimonies from Former Immersion Participants
“It was one of the best decisions I’ve made in a while. It has [had] immense significance for the ministry I am part of.”
“This week has changed my life. I am blessed to have been a part of it and I have already begun the process of sharing these tools with my local church and churches in my city. Time to go to work!”
“[The Immersion] gave me a vision of what the church can be when it lives out the whole gospel. [It] helped me to see the sacrificial, incarnational, joyous love that is foundational to CCD.”
“[The] Immersion was life-changing and life-giving to me. It has changed how I see/approach my marriage, it is changing how we are approaching the opportunity… to help plant a church in our neighborhood, and it has challenged me to re-think the way we approach involving/listening to our community in the programs that we already have up and running.”
