A brand new e-book, written with you in mind.
Each year, 1MISSION hosts thousands of build trip participants at our basecamp in Mexico. These volunteers get to see our work up close and personal. More than that, they get their hands dirty, building houses that represent so much more than just four walls and a roof.
Because the truth is, housing is just one piece of a much larger puzzle. Housing is part of a bigger strategy called community development.
So, what do we actually mean by “community development”? Where does this approach to poverty alleviation come from? What are the underlying principles shaping the transformative work you and I believe in?
I’m glad you asked.
Together with Nate Hughes, our VP of Partnerships, today I’m excited to announce the publication of our FREE new e-book, The True Story That Changes Everything: A Community Development Bible Study in Six Acts.
Drawing upon some of the best theological minds and community development practitioners out there, we wrote this book specifically for trip participants and leaders like you. That’s why many of the discussion questions and applications are focused on trips. But our hope is that it will be helpful for a much broader audience as well.
This e-book is our gift to you. As you work through it individually—or even better, as part of a group—we’d love to hear from you.
Let us know what you find most encouraging about it. Let us know about the ideas that challenge you. And yes, please do let us know if you find any typos so we can correct them in the future!
P.S. Want to be part of a study group but aren’t ready to lead one? Nate Hughes is leading a six-week virtual study of this book beginning Wednesday, February 1 at 9am (Arizona time) and continuing through March 8. Anyone who wants to join is more than welcome! Simply sign up here.
