Community Development School (CDS/HMT 365) ( DEV/HMT 365 )

The Community Development School (CDS) explores a Biblical approach to community transformation which encompasses the holistic development (wisdom, physical, social, spiritual) of the individual and of communities. The principles and practical applications of the course are designed to enable change in varied settings (rural or urban) and cultures throughout the world, with recognition and awareness of the challenges and possibilities of the globalized world. The CDS equips students to be servant leaders, with skills to empower communities [of varying size, wherever they are located] to initiate (author) and accomplish (own) strategic activities, based on the vision and the ultimate goal of bringing life and growth according to God's purposes as He establishes His kingdom on earth. The course curriculum therefore provides a solid working knowledge of transformational development values and skills, while also emphasizing the building up of godly character and healthy relationships in and among participants. The CDS maintains a holistic perspective and focus on the Kingdom of God, is built on the Foundational Values of YWAM and integrates YWAM's three emphases of evangelism, training and mercy, all of which are necessary for successful community development. The course aims to release long-term development workers into the nations.
