COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT HUB
The CDHub is part of YWAM Harpenden in England, which is part of a global movement called Youth With A Mission (YWAM). We are in relationship with the Community Development Centre, which is a global YWAM network focused on community development within the University of the Nations.
The hub began in 2015 as a small group of individuals with a common vision began to dream together. As a hub some of our key values are:
- to be a blessing to the wider community.
- to seek Biblical approaches to community transformation.
- to work collaboratively with others.
- to train people to be trainers.
- to ask good questions and listen before speaking.
- to work humbly, seeking neither power nor glory.
- to practice what we preach
Communities across the world face poverty, injustice and brokenness. Frequently our efforts to help these communities are focused on “outside-in” relief and do not bring long term holistic transformation.
Thriving Communities – Physically, Socially, Mentally and Spiritually. God’s people rising up and engaging with communities, helping them discover their true identity and God’s intentions for them to live life to the full.
Helping people engage in Biblical Community Development.
We aim to help people engage in Biblical Community Development through 3 primary activities. These are:
We seek to unpack and promote biblical principles of community development. We do this through sharing articles, resources and ideas as widely as we can. We are working on developing a collaborative blog and resource sharing website to do this.
We offer training on community development and other related topics – read more about this in our training section. We can also help you consider how to apply biblical community development principles within the context of your own ministry or project.
We help connect like-minded people so they can work effectively together. We are seeking to strengthen networks serving those in YWAM and beyond.
