Product Description

With decades of experience speaking prophetically and redemptively into the charged racial climate of the American South, John Perkins began to see a need for organized thinking and collaborative imagination about how the church engages urban ministry. Together with Wayne Gordon and a now legendary cadre of collaborators, the Christian Community Development Association (CCDA) was born.

Nearly thirty years later the CCDA's eight key components of community development still set the bar for how churches, parachurches and nonprofits engage cities with the whole gospel.
  • Relocation
  • Reconciliation
  • Redistribution
  • Leadership Development
  • Listening to the Community
  • Church-Based Development
  • A Wholistic Approach to Ministry
  • Empowerment
With firsthand perspectives from leaders of longstanding and emerging community development ministries from throughout the world, Perkins and Gordon revisist eight communities and guide a new generation of disciples to seek the welfare of their cities to the glory of God.

Wayne Gordon (D.Min., Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary) is founding pastor of Lawndale Community Church and chairman/president of the Christian Community Development Association (CCDA). John Perkins, the son of a sharecropper, grew up in Mississippi amid dire poverty and rampant racism. Though he had fled to California after his older brother was murdered by a town marshal, he returned after his conversion to Christ in 1960 to share the gospel with his community. His leadership of civil rights demonstrations earned him repeated harassment, beatings and imprisonment. However, in recent years Perkins has received recognition for his work with seven honorary doctorates from Wheaton College, Gordon College, Huntington College, Geneva College, Spring Arbor College, North Park College and Belhaven College. He continues to speak and teach around the world on issues of racial reconciliation, leadership and community development. Perkins is the founder of Voice of Calvary Ministries in Mendenhall, Mississippi, Harambee Ministries in Pasadena, California, and the Christian Community Development Association. His books include and Shane Claiborne is a preacher, writer and lover of Jesus. He attended Eastern University, where he studied sociology and youth ministry. Claiborne is cofounder of The Simple Way and is currently a part of The Alternative Seminary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He serves on the board of the Christian Community Development Association. He is the author of and coauthor of Catch up with him at thesimpleway.org.
