  • Catalyze conflict resolution by working out issues both intra-personally and inter-personally 

  • Structure and lead a board meeting in conformity with the basics of Robert’s Rules of order

  • Comprehend simple graphs that indicate the current fiscal status of the organization 

  • Follow ethical guidelines for best practices for board members regarding truth telling, decision making, fiscal duties, power dynamics, supervising the CEO, recordkeeping, conflicts of interest, organizational policies, the right kind of confidentiality, submitting to federal and state law, etc.

  • Make practical changes in their own behavior by correcting their understanding of Who God is

  • Take responsibility for their personal time and energy management

  • Approach the future with a vision that accords with their Life Mission Statement



Governance Credential

We credential Christian boards because each and every board member needs to have the know-how to do due diligence and vote responsibly.  Boards wield power, yet very few Christian board members have been trained to wield power effectively as servants of the Lord.  We train board members not only on the basics of board governance, but also on the subtleties that tend to make all the difference for the long-term health and sustenance of the Christian entity.
