Ideas for Moving from Relief to Development
by Heidi Unruh (2007)

Resource Type: Tool for guiding church leaders in assessing current ministries and encouraging them to deepen their work beyond simple, short-term relief

Main Audience: Church leaders wanting ideas for transitioning their ministries to a more long-term, holistic, developmental approach


Summary:

This tool is a checklist of ideas for church leaders who want their ministry to move beyond the simple relief tasks to true transformation and development. The practical suggestions offered include going smaller and deeper (with a few individuals), implementing a “give-back” element into current programming, and partnering with a group that is more experienced in developmental ministry.
