Broke, Cold, and Homeless: Jesus’ Guide to Community Development

This session will explore how an ancient text can provide a foundation for understanding the work of community development today. Participants will learn how a deep reading of the Bible can undergird the work of social justice and provide a mandate for work in the community. Using Jesus’ commissioning of the disciples in Matthew 10:5-15, this session will highlight how several key components of the Christian Community Development Association’s work find biblical underpinnings in Jesus’ own mandate to his disciples.
