Why and how to consider disaster preparedness on your journey to church and community transformation (CCT)


Cover image of the Strengthening Preparedness manual

This resource is part of a series for facilitators and practitioners of church and community transformation (CCT) processes who want to achieve greater holistic impact in their work. Each resource in the series focuses on a topic that may not have come out naturally in a typical facilitation process.

This guide focuses specifically on why and how to consider disaster preparedness when moving toward sustainable and holistic CCT.

The resource includes:

  • an explanation of what disaster preparedness is and what the Bible says about it
  • participatory questions
  • group Bible studies
  • activities for facilitation within a CCT process

It can be used alongside any CCT process, including the church and community mobilisation process (CCMP), Umoja and Sangsangai.
