Details

Member churches and related diakonia organizations need continual, intensive accompaniment to improve their organizational performance, human resource management, and policy appraisals. In 2012, LAC member churches decided to develop a human and institutional capacity development framework to tackle these issues.

As such, a series of workshops were held in 2016. Workshop participants comprised church leaders, theological educators, diakonia/development practitioners, representatives of women's and youth ministries, and people with disabilities. At the end the workshops, each member church drew up a draft action plan for diakonia projects and programs.
