CHE is a true best practices model integrating evangelism and discipleship with community-based development. The first CHE programs were in Africa in the 1980s. Since then, the adaptable CHE methods have been proven effective in other parts of the world. Today CHE is being used around the world by churches, non-profits, and governments to lift whole communities out of cycles of poverty and disease.


This phase of training is aimed at understanding the Biblical basis for CHE and basic principles of wholistic community-based development. Participants learn steps for implementation, how to choose a target community and strategies for entering the community. Participants learn basic skills for raising awareness, organizing, and mobilizing the community for cooperative action.

Learning is facilitated in a participatory style through a process of guided self-discovery using large and small group discussions, various hands-on activities, and methods that can be replicated to the village setting. From start to finish, locals are the decision makers in the CHE process. This ensures that programs are sustainable and contextualized.


"Whether you are a missionary, missions pastor, missions team member, going on a missions trip or just simply want to be more of an 'informed' giver, I highly recommend CHE training. It can be used for planting churches or for community development...rural or or closed country. That's the beauty of's moldable and flexible so that no two CHE plants look the same"
