Development in that it seeks to transform people from what they are to what they are meant to be in Christ. Holistic in the sense that it deals with the whole person and all areas of life. Integrated in that all aspects of the ministry are tied together and could not exist or function independently. the case study shows how one organisation has attempted live in a relevant way, to see Christ in the local culture and to have "dialogue with encounter".
