The Certificate of Community Transformation is a community of practice designed to train participants in the biblical foundations of community organizing and the basic skills of listening to a community. Participants join each other virtually in a two Saturday intensive followed by monthly meetings and individual coaching. They practice those skills in their own neighborhood and communally reflect as they complete listening projects. For more information, view the CTC Fact Sheet and CTC Program Arc.

Practice deep listening (to God, Neighbors, and Self) as the central posture for community transformation

The CTC is designed for

  • Leaders who desire mutual transformation with marginalized neighbors, instead of adopting a charity model

  • Leaders ready for hands-on learning, co-creating innovative ministry approaches with neighbors

  • Leaders discerning long-term work alongside urban marginalized communities

  • Leaders who are eager and ready to initiate potentially new relationships and want to co-create a small responsive action with those in their marginalized community

"I have gained more insight into what holistic transformation entails. Shalom is about the total wellbeing of the poor, not just material or spiritual, but both and more."
