CCDA Cafe: Guest speaker - CEO Noel Castellanos

CCDA Cafe: Guest speaker - CEO Noel Castellanos

The Christian Community Development Association is proud to host a CCDA Café featuring CEO Noel Castellanos’ new book Where the Cross Meets the Street: What Happens to the Neighborhood When God is at the Center.

Proclaiming the gospel and forming the faithful: these are the most practiced disciplines of the evangelical church. As central as these disciplines are, however, they are only part of the story. And as Noel has learned over a lifetime of ministry and mission, the neglect of the gospel's full implications for the world has contributed to the erosion of communities and the languishing of poor and other marginalized people.

In Where the Cross Meets the Street Noel shows the strengths and limitations of a narrowly focused church and broadens our imaginations to embrace a gospel that proclaims Christ and forms disciples. This life-giving gospel also demonstrates compassion, confronts injustice and restores individuals and communities to wholeness. This is the whole work of the cross; this is the privilege of those who follow the Word made flesh.

The Christian Community Development Association

(CCDA) is a network of Christians committed to engaging with people and communities in the process of transformation. For over 25 years, CCDA has aimed to inspire, train, and connect Christians who seek to bear witness to the Kingdom of God by reclaiming and restoring under-resourced communities. CCDA walks alongside local practitioners and partners as they live out Christian Community Development by loving their neighbors.

University 2020

  • The Radisson Hotel at Star Plaza (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Music has been shown to assist in meaningful worship and praise, and I am confident it can be used to attract people to our worship services, helping them to hear the Gospel and seek salvation. Are you looking for ways to get new music programs started, or would you like some ideas in how to get a worship committee started in your corps?


University 2020 might be your answer. It’s a two-day event being planned for January 16-17, 2015,
in Merrillville, Indiana at the Radisson Hotel at Star Plaza. This unique opportunity is designed to help corps music leaders and worship planners expand their skills and inspire their ministry.
Sponsored by the Territorial Music and Gospel Arts Department, and supported by the Chicago Staff Band and Bill Booth Theater Company, this event will also feature our young musicians of the Territorial Youth Band and Territorial Youth Congress. If you or your soldiers are interested in this learning experience, you can find more information at: http://centralusa.salvationarmy.org/usc/university_2020
