Economics and Community Development department at the college of the Presbyterian Church in America in Lookout Mountain, Georgia
is a research and educational institute which trains workers in church-centered ministries to promote economic development and spiritual transformation in the context of poor communities. In collaboration with partnering agencies and churches worldwide, the Center initiates pilot projects that serve as laboratories for the development of new models that can be replicated by others. Students in the community development major may apply for domestic and international research internships in these projects, providing them with a unique opportunity to participate in the development of state-of-the-art strategies and to gain practical experience.

 

“Dr. Fikkert taught me that I wasn’t the solution; God was. That was something that I desperately needed to hear.”
