A message from our Executive Director
The short answer is…because we do it right.
Short-term missions done wrong can create more harm than good. Gone are the days of naively dropping in on communities and thinking our group is doing some ‘great good’ when in actuality they are wasting resources, creating dependencies, and deepening divisions.
CityConnexx has thought through the theology, sociology, and philosophy that forms ‘good’ connections. We emphasize three C’s that characterize our connections.
Customizable – because every group and ministry are unique. Cookie cutter approaches do not work.
Collaborative – because neighbor love demands we respect one another and honor each other’s perspectives, goals, and values.
Credible – everything we do is measured by whether or not our actions facilitate Christian community transformation.
CityConnexx has done the work to approve a ministry partner network that you can trust. We’ve already investigated and can assure that our Ministry Partners are doing quality Christian community development.
Matching – we make sure you and the ministry partner are a good fit.
Collaboration – we build a customized schedule based on collaborative conversations between you and the ministry partner.
Equipping – we offer resources for each stage of the connection (pre-trip, trip, and post- trip)
Communication – we want you to feel informed and fully prepared from start to finish.
Last year CCX gave 38% of all monies raised directly to its ministry partner network. This is another way that CCX demonstrates its commitment to the long-term sustainability of the ministry partner network.
