Remember the Past Rejoice in the Present Reimagine the Future

Ce l e b r at i n g 20 Y e a r s o f R esto r i n g U n d e r – R eso urce d Co m m u n i t i es The Christian Community Development Association began 20 years ago when Dr. John Perkins, a Mississippi sharecropper’s son, and Dr. Wayne “Coach” Gordon, an inner-city Chicago transplant from Iowa, invited 150 friends to Lawndale Community Church in Chicago for a time of fellowship with like-minded people and training around best practices. These friends were people like Mary Nelson, Bob Lupton and Glen Kehrein— individuals who had committed their lives to serving the poor, but who felt isolated in the midst of it. Every fall since that first conference in 1989, CCDA has held a National Conference, traveling to a different U.S. city each year. What began as a group of friends gathering in a church has become a movement that draws conference attendees from around the globe!

Welcome to our 20-Year Anniversary CCDA Conference!

I want to thank all of you who sacrificed this year to bring your ministry staff and volunteers, your board members, your church members, and your families to our 20-year celebration as an association. I know you may be getting tired of my constant cheerleading for the work of CCDA leaders around the world, but I am so amazed at the commitment that so many of you have made to serve Christ and to passionately do all you can to see people and communities transformed in Christ’s name! Our coming together this year in Chicago has not been without its challenges. I know it has been a tough choice for some of you to invest so much time and money on our conference when funds are harder to raise and ministry needs abound in your community. For families with kids in school, and for people at colleges and seminaries and at ministries that work with youth and children, leaving home at the start of a new school year has been almost impossible. As for the staff at the national office, we have done our very best to keep expenses down, to plan inspiring general sessions and relevant workshops that take advantage of all of the great CCDA ministries in Chicago, and to provide a venue where all who attend can renew old friendships or connect for the first time. Why do we come together as brothers and sisters from diverse theological, political, and ethnic backgrounds from across the nation and world for these few days when it is such a huge investment? Because we need to know that we are not alone, because we are eager to learn all we can about dealing with the root causes of poverty in a Biblical way, and because we need to be refreshed and inspired if we are going to stay in this work for the long haul. As you know, it takes hundreds of volunteers to make our conference a success. On behalf of our board, I want to thank our local Host Committee, our program team, our exhibitors, and the hundreds of volunteers serving us this week to make sure we have a great conference. I especially want to thank our sponsors and partners who have made this year’s conference possible with their generous support. Finally, we pay tribute to John and Vera Mae Perkins for their investment and commitment to advance the fellowship and work of CCDA for the last 20 years. We want to thank Wayne “Coach” Gordon and his wife, Anne, for their faithful service to CCDA. And we all want to thank Erin Schultz, our conference director, and our entire staff for their tireless work toward making this 20-year celebration a huge success. Our prayer is that you have a life-changing week here in Chicago. Let us know if we can serve you in any way!

As you gather with the CCDA Family this year, it is the hope of board and staff that every member experiences the inspiration, training and connection that is crucial to the accomplishment of our vision: To see wholistically restored communities with Christians fully engaged in the process of transformation. To this end, we have planned the program of the conference... B i b l e Stu dy w i t h Dr. J o h n Pe r k i n s Sit at the feet of our founder each morning and learn from him as he shares his reflections from the Bible. Dr. Perkins energetically preaches from the Word and inspires us all to continue pursuing God with the fervor we see in him.

M o r n i n g a n d E v e n i n g Pl e n a ry S ess i o n s Sharing wisdom from the street and wisdom from academia, this year’s plenary speakers are sure to inspire. Whether they tell stories or engage in a deep study of the Bible, you will walk away with a renewed passion too see under-resourced communities restored. Worship and the arts enhance our times of celebration and allow Chicago to showcase local talent.

6:43 6:43 is your chance to hear great Chicago Jazz, Blues, Hip Hop, and Latin/Pop/Rock without stepping foot outside the hotel. Come early each evening to the Sheraton Chicago Ballroom, at 6:43 PM, and hear some great music before the start of the evening plenary session.

Wo r ks h o ps Workshops are taught by practitioners of Christian Community Development. We believe that the people who know the topics best are the ones living and working on the front lines of ministry, which is why you will see a wide variety of presenters teaching on topics ranging from fundraising to after-school programs. Our workshops focus on sharing skills, experiences, and wisdom, instead of giving formulas or recipes for success.

E x h i b i ts Quality resources are crucial to the success of any ministry or program. The 2010 exhibit hall is packed with curricula, fundraising resources, books, and other valuable tools to help us be more effective in our ministries.

16

N e two r k i n g Isolation is an issue for many people practicing Christian Community Development. We have learned that strong relationships with like-minded Christians are the key to overcoming a sense of loneliness. Formal networking sessions augment the relationship-building that naturally happens over dinner or after a workshop. Networking sessions are focused on a particular topic and allow deeper connections to form.

Ju st i ce F i l m F est i va l Conference night owls will enjoy CCDA’s newest offering, the Justice Film Festival. This year’s theme is Immigration, which John Perkins has described as “the most critical human rights issue of our day.” Featured films expose stories of human struggle, providing a window into the worlds of perpetrators of injustice and those affected by it.

Pr ay e r roo m All who enter the Prayer Room are encouraged to help us build an Isaiah 58:12 wall together. Each day of prayer has its own theme. On Wednesday, September 8, the theme is creative arts, and a special time of praise and prayer will include singing, dancing, and the playing of instruments from noon to 1:00pm. Thursday, September 9 from 8:00am to noon is devoted to intercessory prayer and travailing. Friday morning, September 10, from 8:00am to noon is set aside for quiet prayer, listening, and reflecting in God’s presence. Open prayer is scheduled throughout each day; counseling is also available. Please visit the Prayer Room for a complete schedule, including counseling times.

A N ot e A bo ut Wo r ks h o ps... Holding the National Conference in Chicago affords us the unique opportunity to showcase local ministries that have defined what it means to do Christian Community Development over the last 20 years. In addition to the great workshops at the Sheraton Hotel, during the day on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, local CCDA organizations host conference attendees for “On Location” workshops. We invite you to lace up your walking shoes, strap on your camera and journey into Chicago’s neighborhoods for a once in a lifetime experience. As you read the following pages of workshop information, please keep in mind: In an effort to help you select the most appropriate workshops, each workshop has been given a level: Level 101 is for people just learning about Christian Community Development and those who have been involved for fewer than five years who need fundamental, practical tools. Level 201 is geared toward people who have been involved in CCD for five to ten years and are in need of more specific skills. Level 301 is aimed at CCD veterans – those who have been in direct ministry for more than 10 years. Networking sessions are facilitated discussions around a specific topic. This year’s sessions are interspersed among the workshops in the schedule. Look for the “Networking” track on pages 66 and 67 for more information. Networking sessions do not have levels. The following pages contain workshop information organized by section: Workshops ordered by schedule–pages 22-33 Workshops have been sorted by date and then time. As you search for seminars to attend, we recommend starting in this section and referring to the later sections for more information about workshops that interest you. On Location workshops–pages 34-45 The workshops featured at our On Location sites can be found in the previous two sections, as well, but this section offers complete information about the host sites, including directions to the site and eating options. Workshops ordered by track–pages 46-73 Workshops have been sorted by track and then level.

Breakthrough’s mission is to demonstrate the compassion of Christ by partnering with those affected by poverty to build connections, develop skills, and open doors of opportunity. The ministry began in 1992 on Chicago’s North Side as a drop-in center for homeless adults. What began as a few church members serving coffee in a small storefront room has blossomed into a thriving organization with over 50 staff that now provides wholistic services in East Garfield Park on the West Side of Chicago. Today Breakthrough (breakthrough.org) provides interim housing shelters for men and women, works with young people and their families, and empowers adults in the community to achieve self-sufficiency and break the cycle of poverty.

La Villita Community Church and New Life Community Church 2300 S. Millard Avenue, Chicago, IL 60623

The two churches that are hosting this set of On Location workshops serve the largest Mexican community in the Midwest, with over 100,000 people. La Villita’s commercial district generates more revenue than any retail strip in Chicago other than Michigan Avenue’s Magnificent Mile, yet this vibrant neighborhood faces many challenges. Half of its population is under the age of 25, the schools are overcrowded and underperforming, and community residents have high rates of diabetes, obesity, and depression. A major port of entry for Mexican immigrants, La Villita is strengthened by the economic power, traditions, determination, and hope that they bring.

From this core group of high school students, Wayne and his wife, Anne, along with a mother of several of the boys in the group, conceived the idea of starting a church. With a meeting of 15 people in March 1978, Lawndale Community Church moved from dream to reality.

Many Peoples Church is located in Rogers Park, one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the United States. We are a small but growing group of Christians of different ages, backgrounds, and cultures who seek to find common ground in the church and in our shared commitment to our community. Growing out of the Christian Community Development work of Neighbors United in New Possibilities, Many Peoples Church first met for worship in January 2006. The original members joined together because of their desire to belong to a church that was deeply committed to their neighborhood and firmly rooted in the Reformed tradition of Christianity. In 2007 Ruth Hoekwater, who previously served as a consultant to churches and nonprofits, opened The Common Cup coffee shop. Each month The Common Cup donates proceeds from its tip jar to a different neighborhood nonprofit program. Many Peoples Church and Neighbors United in New Possibilities rent space adjacent to The Common Cup. In unique ways, all three parts make visible God’s commitment to reconcile all things to himself in Jesus Christ.

Pui Tak Center

The Resurrection Project

2216 S. Wentworth Avenue, Chicago, IL 60616

2021 S. Morgan Street, Chicago, IL 60608

Since its founding in 1915, Chinese Christian Union Church has had a deep commitment to serving the spiritual needs of the Chinatown community. But it has also been concerned about serving the needs of new immigrants. At various times in its history, it offered English classes for adults, sponsored homework tutoring and Chinese language classes for children, and opened up its gym to the community.

Nearly 20 years ago, neighbors in Chicago’s Pilsen community began talking with new urgency about the blight, violence, and neglect they saw on their blocks.

In 1993, the church purchased a 30,000-squarefoot historical-landmark building from the federal government and converted it into the Pui Tak Center. In Chinese, pui tak means to build character or cultivate virtue. Among the center’s many ministries are language and music classes, a computer center, and services for new immigrants.

Uptown, a lakefront North Side community area, is one of Chicago’s most densely settled and ethnically diverse neighborhoods. Long an important cultural center, Uptown has also played an important role in Chicago’s history of community organizing. It is a place of great contrasts: the median price of a condominium in the neighborhood rose over 65 percent from 2000 to 2005, but Uptown is also one of the primary immigrant resettlement locations in Chicago. The Uptown on-site workshops are jointly hosted by Uptown Baptist Church, Emmaus Ministries, and Wheaton in Chicago. Uptown Baptist was founded in 1976 and includes in its mission the connecting of “heads and hearts to hands and feet to serve our world and meet real needs.” Emmaus Ministries, founded in 1990, provides long-term support to homeless men involved in street prostitution. Through relationally-based ministry, Emmaus focuses on evangelism, transformation, and education for the “most wounded on the streets.” Wheaton in Chicago is a semester-long, residential, experiential program of urban studies for Wheaton College students, who live and study in and learn from the city while interning with organizations throughout Chicago.

Passion alone won’t solve these complex problems, and sometimes popular solutions do more harm than good. How can concerned citizens act effectively on their good intentions to seek justice and serve those in need? Which institutions and approaches best cultivate the relationships that make for human flourishing, and how can they work together to promote the common good? This workshop unpacks a Biblically informed framework for understanding and engaging poverty, social breakdown, and injustice. Participants will receive a free DVD and small-group study guide to help them implement these ideas in their own communities. Ryan Messmore The Heritage Foundation (Washington, DC) Faith–Based Drug Recovery Coaching (Lv. 201) The objective of this workshop is for the attendees to have a firm understanding of a faith-based, wholistic approach to the long-term recovery of a substance abuser or addict. A multidisciplinary approach must be implemented whereby a drug-recovery coach works one-on-one with the recovering addict to map out a plan with goals and objectives that will help the recovering addict to stay sober. Presenters offer resources for further faith-based training for drug-recovery coaches. Brian Oswald Parkview Christian Church (Orland Park, IL) Mental Illness, Healthy Responses (Lv. 201) Mental health plays an important role in ministries, churches, and community development organizations, as well as in the lives of those they serve. Helping people who are marginalized demands an awareness of common mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. The presenters describe symptoms of these disorders; discuss making referrals to mental health specialists, which can be essential for people who strive for wholistic wellness; and provide practical tools for working with people who have mental health disorders.

La iglesia está teniendo muy poco éxito con la segunda y tercera generación. ¿Porqué? ¿Cómo podemos cambiar ésto? De acuerdo a Philip Jenkins, el cristianismo ha tomado un rumbo hacia el “sur”. “La era del cristianismo occidental ya ha pasado, y el día del cristianismo sureño ha amanecido.” Este taller propone que las razones no son las que da Jenkins, pero que los asuntos son mucho más abarcantes y sociológicos, y no del todo espirituales. La iglesia latina en los EE.UU. no está al tanto de los cambios en la sociedad. En sí, no es un problema de la “demanda” sino de la “oferta”. Este será un taller inspirador sobre el crecimiento de iglesia, enfocándose en cambios paradigmáticos y necesarios.

What is the relationship between congregational formation and urban mission, between liturgical practices and prophetic witness, between stability and fruitfulness?

Chris Jaros Mundell & Associates, Inc. (Indianapolis, IN) Native American State: Political Representation for Native Americans (Lv. 301) Most residents of the U.S. will acknowledge that the country has a long history of injustice against the Native American community.

This workshop explores one possible step: creating a virtual Native American 51st state that would give Native Americans a voice in national political structures. For presidential elections, each member of a federal- or staterecognized tribe could opt to vote and be represented in the electoral college as a constituent of the Native American state.

A Panel Discussion (Lv. 201) Communities that are strategically located and starved for capital are seeing housing prices rise as new, betterresourced neighbors move in. The gentrification that is changing the face of our communities is one of the most pressing and potentially divisive topics urban ministries are forced to think about. We must respond, but how?

How Friendly is Caesar These Days?

Sustainable Ministry: Serving for the Long Run We often use the word sustainability in reference to environmental issues, but how much do we consider sustainability when it comes to personal energy consumption?

The couple has not looked back, but they tell their story to help others achieve sobriety and to offer a glimpse of how to help others like them recover from a hopeless state of mind. Darrin Brown Lawndale Community Church (Chicago, IL) Debra Brown Lawndale Community Church (Chicago, IL) Burnout and Boundaries (Lv. 101) In 2006 Doug had a bad day in the drop-in center. He closed early, walked out back, and punched an exterior cedar wall as hard as he could. This was not normal behavior for him. Something was wrong. Writing with his left hand was not the only thing that Doug had to learn as he recovered from the injury he’d inflicted on himself. As soon as the Vicodin wore off, he was back to work, but with a different perspective and a new set of boundaries that have allowed him not only to continue in his work, but to thrive in it. In this workshop he tells the story. Doug Van Ramshorst Emmaus Ministries (Chicago, IL)

Living with Unmet Desires (Lv. 101) We all have hopes, dreams, and goals. But in ministry, our good desires often are not met in the way or in the time we had hoped, and we can feel abandoned, jealous, or bitter.

Collateral Damage: When Helping Others Hurts Us (Lv. 201) Working in the trenches of inner cities, ministry workers experience the brokenness of those we serve on a day-today basis. Connecting to their brokenness on a regular basis can stir up and exacerbate our own brokenness. When this occurs, how do we continue ministering to the brokenness of others? This workshop addresses two issues: how the brokenness of the people we serve stirs up our own issues, and how we can bring those wounds to Christ so they can be healed. Lynwood Morriss Lydia Home Association (Chicago, IL) Lonni Kehrein Circle Urban Ministries (Chicago, IL)

Exploring the legacies of Francis of Assisi, John of the Cross, Teresa of Avila, and other spiritual masters, this workshop explores an everyday spirituality that moves beyond private sessions of individual piety and links in to the dispositions of the Samaritan heart: an integrated core from which flows a harmony of compassion, justness, action, and peaceability and that exhibits a reverential and intentional willingness to cross boundaries and call forth the unique and hidden nobility in every person. Keith Jagger Asbury Theological Seminary (Wilmore, KY)

Relationship 911 for Couples in Ministry (Lv. 201) Couples who minister together enjoy rich experiences that build and strengthen the couple and family, but unique challenges faced in ministry can test a couple’s commitment.

This workshop questions the traditional approaches to fundraising and searches the scriptures for a biblical foundation for fundraising. This foundation takes you from arranging transactions to seeking transformation, from soliciting donors to coaching champions, from thanking people to thanking God, from desiring success to desiring faithfulness. This is not a Pollyanna approach; nor is it a secular relationship model with some Bible verses tacked on. It is a practical, proven model of fundraising employed by more than a thousand Christian ministries. Matt Bates Mission Increase Foundation (Los Angeles, CA) Federal and Private Funding for Faith–Based Community Developers (Lv. 201) This presentation reviews 10 or more major grant-funding sources that are currently accessible to faith-based community developers.

Sarah Spoonheim Bethel New Life (Chicago, IL) Stacy Adams Bethel New Life (Chicago, IL) Legal Issues in Fundraising: Creative Strategies for Challenging Economic Times (Lv. 301) Whether seeking donations, charging fees, or selling goods, nonprofit organizations need to know what is legally permissible, what reporting requirements apply, and what pitfalls to avoid.
