• Welcome to ABCD in Action!


    ABCD in Action is your community - a community of members from around the world, where we can explore together how to apply the principles and practices of Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD). All are welcome!

    "Building on the skills of local residents, the power of local associations, and the supportive functions of local institutions, asset-based community development draws upon existing community strengths to build stronger, more sustainable communities for the future.” ~http://www.abcdinstitute.org

  • Congratulations, Roger!

    We're highlighting Roger Vest this month. Roger submitted a number of ideas for the new name of the ABCD in Action newsletter, including the winning entry - Building Blocks. To congratulate Roger or just to say hi, go to his Guestbook on his profile and leave a comment.

    We'd like you to all meet Roger:

    My name is Roger Vest and I serve as a United Methodist pastor in Powder Springs, Georgia. I am currently working on my Doctor of Ministry in Community Organizing through Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary in Evanston, Illinois. I have been doing community ministry for 25 years and have discovered, often through mistakes that I have made, that people and communities are stronger and last longer when they are built on assets instead of the problems in the community. I am seeking to rally our changing suburban community by seeing the resources that lie within all of us.
