Communicating, planning and implementing tools for partners concerned with development.
Describe the need affecting community
The Church of Christ in Congo (ECC) has hundreds of ministry locations throughout the DRC. Because of a lack of roads and the difficulty of transportation and communication, it is challenging to access and assess the needs of the community. Many potential solutions to overcome the poverty and humanitarian issues go unaddressed because of the lack of accessibility.
How will this Advance project help to address the need?
One of the priorities we have identified, in connection with partners is the lack of ability to evaluate and develop appropriate tools for ministries in particular contexts throughout the DRC. This project will help us develop relationships at the regional level. From this foundation we can encourage the context specific tools for communication, leadership development, project management, financial management and other needed systems. Evaluation of technical issues, particularly around communication is key to helping existing and new ministries to thrive.
Describe the primary goal of the project
This project seeks to be a means to develop relationships with regional ECC leadership in the DRC and assist them in evaluating their needs with regard to communication and management. To help them find appropriate partners to develop the tools necessary for their context and ministries.
Describe the change you would like to see in the community as a result of this Advance project
We see that churches are following Jesus Christ into ministry with the poor, and we hope this project of support will bring cleaner water, better health, education, vocational opportunities, safer homes, and healthy relationships through the activities of the churches in the DRC.
