CCDA Coming to Waco

June 12, 2008

For those of you who are interested in community development, the Christian Community Development Association will be partnering with the Baptist General Convention of Texas and Mission Waco to bring the “No Need Among You” conference to Waco on July 17-20. Cost is $50 including some meals.

Some of the presenters:

  • John Perkins (the founder of CCDA)
  • Dr. Randel Everett, the new Executive Director of the BGCT
  • Jimmy Dorrel, Director of Mission Waco, will be teaching on ’empowerment programs’

Some of the topics:

  • New vision for the BGCT
  • Empowerment programs
  • “Bridges Out of Poverty” re-framing how we understand the thinking and actions of the poor
  • Tour of the ‘other side’ of Waco
  • A ‘world banquet’
  • and several Saturday evening workshops

They will also have Spanish language sessions for Spanish language leaders.

More info and registration. I am not certain if I will be able to attend, but drop me a line if you plan to go.
