Working together for the city…
Charity To Change is an innovative program to work with churches and church collaboratives to reimagine how congregations can invest in long-term, systemic community change with the skills, knowledge, and tools essential to build closer connections with their local communities, to develop a better understanding of their socio-cultural context, and be responsive to their most pressing needs.
A city’s faith community has tremendous resources that can help renew that city if it is meaningfully and intentionally engaged. By growing in their awareness of the assets that are currently present in both their neighborhoods and congregations, and in their skill at networking to activate the resources they have identified, congregations possess the powerful capability for action that leads to lasting and sustainable change for the common good.
Charity to Change is working to bring churches of every ethnic background together to do something substantial for the city…together. Kingdom Partners has been working towards reconciliation between churches for years and has seen hundreds of faith communities come together to talk, build friendships and work together for the good of our communities.
It is our hope that by building bridges between our faith communities, friendships will be formed that will lead to partnerships that change our communities for the better. When faith communities pool their resources and abilities, great things can happen. Charity to Change helps provide resources, training and opportunities for the church to make a difference in Chattanooga and beyond.
