Abstract
The purpose of this study was to prepare church leaders to become aware of the role of the church in a community that had become ineffective in the actualization of their faith. My challenge was to assess and develop church leaders in new dynamic ways in becoming deeply aware of the community/church needs holistically. This study was to further implement a Literacy Awareness Program where the congregation became acutely aware of community needs and engaged themselves in becoming all that God intended them to be toward serving the community locally and globally for kingdom building. Research showed that the congregation lacked the awareness of unresolved empathy that was persistent in the community in terms of high crime rates and the mis-education of the youth. This dissertation ascertained the credibility of the congregation that was sited in a strategic location but lacked the ability to be effective in a community that was quite literally desperately soliciting help in un-acceptable ways. Engaging in the implementation of the Campaign Literacy Awareness program the leaders in the congregation became acutely aware of their roles improving society.
