One City is honored to be a member of the Christian Community Development Association (CCDA).
In their own words, “The Christian Community Development Association (CCDA) is a network of Christians committed to seeing people and communities holistically restored. We believe that God wants to restore us not only to right relationship with Himself but also with our own true selves, our families and our communities. Not just spiritually, but emotionally, physically, economically, and socially.” The CCDA was founded in 1989 by Dr. John Perkins, after he had been working in under-resourced communities since the 1960s. Today, the CCDA, and it’s now 1,000 associated organizations, are strategically positioned to lead efforts across our country to address poverty and issues of injustice. Their goal is to inspire, train, and connect Christians who seek to bear witness to the Kingdom of God by reclaiming and restoring under-resourced communities. The CCDA brings a plethora of knowledge, experience, and support that can only come from years of service.
One City’s affiliation with the CCDA has established a relationship with other partner organizations from St. Louis to Memphis, Nashville, and Michigan who adhere to the same goals and dreams. We are proud to be affiliated with CCDA and see this as a wonderful opportunity, not only for the Community Center to learn and grown under such established and experience leadership, but also for the individuals directly involved with One City.
