Dear CCDA Friend,
Just imagine: a “love army” comprised of thousands of Christians moving forward to love and care for the most ravaged neighborhoods in America.
Christians, en masse, actually being the hands and feet of Christ by relocating to live in the most forgotten neighborhoods in our nation – reconciling marginalized peoples and communities – and redistributing resources so that NO ONE is left in need.
Is this vision audacious? Perhaps. Yet this is what CCDA has worked toward for over thirty years and we need your help to continue!
We are asking you to take the love and support for your communities and turn it into a generous year-end donation to help us continue making this vision a reality. We need your ideas, support, and participation to move boldly into the future of CCDA.
This is a special season here at CCDA as we begin the search for our next-generation leader to bring CCDA into the future. We invite you to join us in prayer as God leads.
This past year, CCDA inspired, trained, and connected thousands of Christians seeking the peace of their communities. As an association we continue to develop more tools, resources, and opportunities to engage and strengthen our practitioners. In October, 1,400 people came to Dallas from diverse settings to our CCDA National Conference.
Whether through local & regional network growth strategy, webinars & online learning platforms, localized training events, or connecting grassroots advocacy work in education equity, mass incarceration, or immigration, you too can use the resources of CCDA to bear witness to the Kingdom of God by reclaiming and restoring under-resourced communities.
CCDA has been given a $30,000 end of the year challenge grant. Your matching gift can help wholistically transform communities and train practitioners for the work of CCD. Join us with your financial support to help us bring our audacious vision to life.
With Excitement & Expectations,
Dr. Mary Nelson, Interim President & CEO
Christian Community Development Association
