A Community Transformation Center (CTC) is a kingdom-centered, biblical and vocational-styled on-site training center which trains national Indian Christians who have a desire to be agents of transformation. The CTC is a church-planting training that is creative, comprehensive, effective and enduring. It is a Bible School, Vocational Training Centre and Mission Base all rolled into one. The functioning of CTC is for the church, by the church, through the church and of the church.
The purpose of CTC is to train national lay leaders of the Church in evangelism and church planting and empower them socially and economically so that they can create a chain reaction in empowering the grass roots and bring spiritual and socio-economic transformation.
Henry Ford once said "Coming together is the beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success." The CTC is a joint effort involving an administrative body of the Church or a representative, who has a passion for taking the message of transformation to a people who have been abandoned and neglected by their communities.
The next step involves recruiting twelve students for the program. The students are chosen through application forms and a battery of interviews. The students attend an orientation program which familiarizes them with UEM's and CTC's vision, objectives, goals and functions.
The CTC training programme is for two years swapped between one month Residential Class and three months of Field Work. The objective is three fold.Evangelism:
