Community Development

Seeing change in communities is our passion!  Our community development team works alongside other ministries at UofN BB and local churches to catalyze transformation in the communities around us – city slums and rural villages.  Training and equipping our Khmer brothers and sisters to bring God’s kingdom to their neighbours is our heart.

Community development is a vast field – everything from health, education, human rights, and governance to agriculture and more!  Early 2013 is when we first really stepped out into this arena with a dream to see Khmer people empowered and changing their villages with the full Gospel – word and deed. We are keen to see development work done well in Cambodia with sustainability always prioritized in project design.  Sometimes, we might call on skilled short-term teams or volunteers as projects have need, but primarily, we spur communities to make their own change tapping into the wealth of local knowledge, skill, and resources.  A long-term process, community development calls for commitment, team work, insight, and perseverance – qualities it is so fun to see at work in our team – but most of all, utter dependence on the Holy Spirit’s leading!
