Church & Community Mobilisation Project

Church & Community Mobilisation Project

Community and Churches Mobilisation Process (CCMP) was established in 2006 after it was recognised that the area had fallen into a dependency on outside aid. CCMP aims to encourage local churches and communities to use their own resources and abilities to plan and implement sustainability projects rather than depending on outside assistance.

CCMPCCMP is a diocese programme funded by TEAR FUND. It has a paid co-ordinator who works under the diocese umbrella and a team of volunteer deanery coordinators in each village.

Regular workshops are held to train and encourage local leaders to train, educate and pass on that training to others to equip all members of each community and church to be able to help themselves and each other without assistance from the outside. It encourages the local communities to be involved in the idea’s, planning and implementation of sustainability projects to encourage ownership of the task.

The impact of this project will be empowered churches and communities that are proactive, independent thinking and confident decision makers. They will be able to prioritise their needs and identify and mobilise their locally available resources to meet their needs without external funding. The Church and Communities will be in charge of their own destiny as they live life in its fullness inspired by the Word of God.

The areas of action include Spiritual Nurture, Health Care, Poverty Alleviation and Education which are interrelated and directly impact on the church and the wider community.

The aims are:

improved livelihood of the congregations and the community members
higher literacy rates
clean water supply to the villages
mitigation of the effects of HIV/AIDS
proper and full use of the locally available resources
increased giving in churches and increased Church Central Fund (CCF) to the Dioces

CCMP works through the inspiration of God’s word and quotes Timothy 3:16-17 as its vision and mission statement;

All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.’
