Describe the need affecting community
The Church and Community Ministry Program is designed to make available a mobile cadre of workers in mission, who serve at the grassroots level, the majority of whom are deployed to areas across the nation in response to a request for Church and Community Workers through an application process. It is also designed to provide a channel of service for women and men who wish to serve in urban/rural/specialized projects in the United States. Church and Community Workers are professional persons with a commitment to Jesus Christ, to the Church, and to ministries of compassion, justice, liberation, and self-development of people. They are a mobile cadre of workers in mission who serve at the grassroots level to assist the Church and community in coming to grips with issues, needs, and problems facing them.
