What is membership?
For the past 25 years, CCDA and 1,000 associated organizations have been pursuing a common vision to see wholistically restored communities with Christians fully engaged in the process of transformation. CCDA is strategically positioned to lead efforts across our country to address poverty and issues of injustice. We do this by supporting the work of local Practitioners (individuals, churches and organizations located in under-resourced neighborhoods and directly practicing the 8 Key Components of CCD) and Partners (individuals, churches and organizations providing needed support for Practitioners) coming together around a common vision and exercising our voice on the national stage.
Our goal is to have Practitioners and Partners joining together as active CCDA members, ensuring the ongoing mission of CCDA to inspire, train, and connect Christians who seek to bear witness to the Kingdom of God by reclaiming and restoring under-resourced communities.
As one of our members stated, “[We] are a member of CCDA because we are committed and indebted to the work of the [association]. [Our organization] would not have begun without the work and people of CCDA.”
We believe it takes all kinds of people working together to realize our bold vision and mission. Whether you or your organization are a Practitioner, directly practicing the philosophy of CCD in your community or you or your organization are a Partner, supporting the work of CCD through time, talent, or treasure, you play a vital role.
In light of all this, we have spent the last several months of 2016 working through our membership structure and benefits. We asked for your input. We talked with staff. We talked with the board.
We learned that our membership software is a hindrance not a help. So we are updating it. Not only will this make our membership signup and renewal process much easier but it will open the door to some exciting new benefits. Overwhelmingly, we heard that the structure was too complex and did not offer enough benefits. In fact, some of you mentioned you didn’t know that there were any benefits!
Why become a member?
At CCDA we want to see wholistically restored communities with Christians fully engaged in the process of transformation. We do this through inspiring, training, and connecting Christians who seek to bear witness to the Kingdom of God by reclaiming and restoring under-resourced communities.
Membership has always been a way for us to accomplish our mission and vision. We want you to succeed in your work and so we created a structure that will sustain our work of inspiring, training and connecting individuals and organizations just like you. We are constantly striving to update and scale the resources available to our members so that you have the tools you need to complete the good work God has called you to.
