A collection of tools for use by facilitators and trainers of CCMP

The objective of the church and community mobilisation process (CCMP) is to empower people to transform their situations holistically using their God-given local resources.

The process first envisions a church in integral mission theology and then empowers church members to live out their faith in a holistic way, responding to the needs in their community. The process also helps the church to build relationships within the community and to mobilise local resources in order to meet the community’s needs. As such, CCMP helps break dependency on outside organisations bringing aid to a community.

The Light Wheel is a tool developed by Tearfund to help us think more practically and holistically about the areas of life we must consider if we want to see whole-life transformation.

It is made up of nine aspects of well-being, and when all areas are impacted positively, we can say that the holistic transformation - desired through CCMP - is being achieved.

This short document is an introduction to the integration of the Light Wheel into CCMP.
