How Does Urban CHE Work!!!
What is Neighborhood Transformation?
Neighborhood Transformation is a strategy that helps churches minister in a wholistic manner to people in urban poor neighborhoods. It empowers people to take responsibility for their own lives. It helps neighbors to help their neighbors and moves them from welfare and relief to empowerment. It focuses on assets found in the neighborhood, which fosters local ownership instead of being based on problems that they expect outsiders to fix for them.
How does NT work?
Neighborhood Transformation (NT) trains church lay-people how to enter a nearby poor neighborhood, develop relationships, and identify assets already found in individuals and groups in the neighborhood. Then, by working with the local people, this information is used to improve the living conditions and build bridges for the Gospel.
Training starts with a 12-hour weekend, which includes Thursday and Friday evenings and all day Saturday to introduce people to the concepts, strategy and approach of (NT). Then a team begins to implement some of the ideas in a neighborhood. As they begin ministry there are 50 Workshops that can be chosen from. The workshops are 4 – 8 hours each and can be used to train themselves or people in the neighborhood on topics they want to know, when it’s the right time for them to learn a specific topic.
