About

What is Truth & Transformation About?

This website is dedicated to exploring Gods intention for communities to flourish and our role in helping this become reality. We long to see both individuals and communities released from the grips of brokenness and poverty and empowered to lead productive lives of fulfillment spiritually, mentally, socially, emotionally, and physically. The purpose of this site is:

  1. To promote discussion and thinking with regards to God’s intentions for our communities and our role in helping communities develop towards these. We’ll be looking as questions such as what does the Bible have to say about poverty? How did God intend communities to operate? What is the churches role in bringing transformation in society?
  2. To share useful ideas, stories, resources, contacts and ideas to help you work effectively with communities in your context.

Our prayer is that this website would help you bear much fruit and bring glory to our Father in Heaven.

Why Truth & Transformation?

The name Truth & Transformation reflects our belief that genuine and sustained transformation must be underpinned by truth. That transformation comes as we we step into the truth of who we are, who God is, the nature of the world he made for us and the role He has given us in His Kingdom.

The name of this website is also inspired by the book of the same name by Vishal Mangalwadi, who graciously allowed this site to share the same name as his book
