Congregational Development Corporation (CDC)

MISSION: Resourcing local churches to understand community opportunities to launch and revitalize ministries

VISION: Empowering local churches to thrive

RESPONSIBILITIES: The Pen-Del Conf CDC Corporation currently meets virtually usually no less than twice but often four times a year to review and evaluate grant applications from organizations seeking support for new vital ministries.  Committee members also serve as shepherds to help organizations with the application and grant reporting process.  Committee Members may be assigned as shepherds to a specific ministry.  As shepherds, committee members, may be asked to visit, provide guidance, or minor mentorship support if requested.   

About CDC

CDC partners with local churches by providing resources to help you understand your community, to assess community needs, and to develop ministries in response. 

We offer Readiness360, a tool to assess four measures of your congregation’s readiness to reach your community: spiritual intensity, missional alignment, dynamic relationship, and cultural openness. We also offer coaching to help guide your process.
