Embodying the whole of the Gospel through meeting the needs of the poor.
The Christian Community Development philosophy is founded on biblical, practical principles evolved from years of living and working among the poor. John Perkins, first developed this philosophy while working among the poor in Mississippi. Practitioners of Christian Community Development have distilled the philosophy into 8 Key Components. The first three are based on John Perkins’ original “three R’s” of community development: relocation, reconciliation and redistribution. Other components were later added by Christians discovering ways to rebuild poor neighborhoods.

The Jubilee Impact Fund will embody the 8 Christian Community Development principles in all aspects of its investments, goals and operations.
