CCIH 2019 Conference Abstract Form
Called to Care: A Strong Community for Lasting Health

At our core, faith communities are called to care for themselves and those in need.
Paul’s letter to the Philippians reminds us in 2:3-4 to “do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” This missive is even more important in the complex world of today.

The conference will explore questions as:
- How do we build capacity of local caring communities and organizations?
- How can faith-based organizations incorporate human-centered design? (Program design that considers the human perspective in all steps of development and problem solving.)
- Are faith-based programs themselves resilient and innovative?
- Do faith based programs promote dignity and justice within communities?
- Are we working with other faith-based organizations, churches, government agencies, NGOs, and others to ensure our communities are self-sufficient?
- How are faith-based organizations integrating faith and work on the ground/ or in the field?
-What makes faith-based organizations different?
-What opportunities do faith communities have to also care for themselves?
