In 1989, Dr. John Perkins provided leadership that resulted in the groundbreaking work for the formation of the Christian Community Development Association. The mission of CCDA is to express the love of Christ in the poorest communities of America.
Over the past several years, CCDA leaders organized the CCDA Institute for the purpose of providing theological and practical training in the core principles of Christian community development. Using seasoned veterans drawn for the ranks of Christian community development organizations from across the country, The Institute moves from city to city delivering day-long training for urban ministry practitioners.
Here’s the good news: The Institute is coming to Dallas! On March 2-4, 2005, The Institute will offer training sessions for urban workers from across the city and around the state. Training sessions will meet here at Central Dallas Ministries (409 N. Haskell Avenue).
Two classes will be offered by The Institute while here in Dallas:
1) The Theology and Practice of Incarnational Ministry with Rev. Noel Castellanos
2) Creating Healthy Communities with Dr. Robert (Bob) Lupton

One of the goals of The Institute is to provide leadership and theological training for indigenous leaders from the communities where we live and work. Consider enrolling yourself and bringing a community leader along with you.
