Discipleship Among the "Under-Resourced"
Nov 01, 2009
In the first week of September, more than 3,000 people who minister among our country’s urban poor gathered in Chicago for the Christian Community Development Association’s (CCDA) annual national conference. A team of three Navigators, Eddie Broussard (Colorado Springs), Connie Milton (Chicago), and Laura Jenkins (Albuquerque) conducted a seminar on disciplemaking at this event.
One of the highlights of the event came from Native American missiologist, Richard Tiss, who has long-standing ties to The Navigators and a First Nations perspective of the issues facing the under-resourced. Eddie commented that Richard’s address—and the ensuing discussion—caused participants to, “consider how we understand our context and our identity in the community so that it facilitates the advance of the Gospel where we live and minister.”
All told, some 40 Navigators attended the event and left excited and energized for the work among the under-resourced communities across the United States.
