Description

Church in Hard Places

http://www.churchinhardplaces.com/

THE HARD PLACES

The world’s poorest communities often share common characteristics:

  • A densely populated community.
  • Multi-Generational community.
  • Matriarchal leadership.
  • Isolated culturally, economically and geographically.
  • Hard working low income subsistence living.
  • Higher than average levels of mental health issues, addiction, illiteracy, family breakdown, crime.
  • Diverse ethnic, racial, and socio-economic groups coexisting in close proximity causing tension and a lack of social cohesion.

THE CHALLENGE

The Church is a display of God’s glory, mercy, and wholeness in the midst of a broken and hurting community. Churches in hard places often share common struggles: A lack of well-trained leadership; a lack of resources to equip workers in these communities; a sense of alienation from the broader evangelical church.

WHAT IS THE CiHP NETWORK?

Our goal is to equip church leaders, train indigenous believers, and develop resources for the church in hard places.

We define hard places as “economically and socially disadvantaged communities”
The CiHP Network is a network of church leaders and trainees seeking to build healthy churches in socially and economically disadvantaged communities around the world.
