When you think about your board, does it feel like a blessing?
Great boards can be a gift to an organization when members understand their role and create environments dedicated to serving the kingdom. Board service can also be a tremendous gift for the person serving when members have the freedom to offer their skills and lead with courage. With role clarity, healthy board composition, and invigorating communication, board service is a blessing to leaders and organizations.
How do you foster the change needed to help your organization’s board grow into the strategic leaders and protectors of the mission required to achieve your God-given vision?
Join us to:
- Learn the key roles and responsibilities related to serving on a faith-based nonprofit board
- Learn ways board members can create pathways for congregations and nonprofits to work together
- Explore key ways to increase board engagement, including fundraising
- Practice skills needed to recruit, retain, and retire board members
This workshop, along with its corresponding early learning and group coaching opportunities, is intentionally designed for ministry board members and staff to attend so that together you can carve out a path that leads to advancing the cause and creating lasting kingdom impact.
Register your board and staff today for this updated board leadership workshop.
Bring your board to this special evening session on Board Development!
