At the heart of all church and community mobilising processes is a well-trained and effective facilitator. This training pack addresses the four most important elements required to achieve quality and competence in CCT trainers and facilitators.

It includes:

  • The biblical foundations of Integral mission
  • Reflections on good leadership and facilitation skills, including tools to improve both
  • Guidance for how to adapt CCT processes for each context including geographical, cultural, denominational, demographic factors
  • An introduction to the Light Wheel, an essential framework that helps reveal the breadth and depth of whole-life transformation

The activities and Bible studies within each chapter help enhance the facilitator’s understanding and practice of that particular topic, and can also be used as part of the CCT process in the church or local community.


Over the last 30 years Tearfund has helped to develop processes that take local churches on a journey to achieve CCT.

These processes require a facilitator to take the church and community through a collection of specific activities designed to envision people in integral mission and then take action to put these learnings into practice.

This pack is intended for use by CCT trainers who are responsible for training, developing and mentoring facilitators of a CCT process. This pack has specific chapters that focus on areas within CCT that may require additional training in order to maximise quality implementation and impact.

Trainers should not use this pack in order, but select the most appropriate activities or Bible studies for the facilitators they are training and the stage they have reached in their CCT process.
