We have a heart for ministries and nonprofits to be released from the anxiety of figuring out effective business practices in order to focus on the work to accomplish their mission.
We believe commerce is inextricably woven into society, into our everyday lives. Business activities are part of ministry and charitable nonprofit work.
God made us to do business. We make agreements and make exchanges of value every day. The structure of offering something of value, agreeing to how it is exchanged, and keeping track of the exchange are key elements of business.
We are all connected and the decisions made have far reaching effects around the world, and in our own backyards. Business starts with identifying needs and wants in the marketplace.
Planning defines a consistent method of assessing need and allocating resources. This helps avoid the squeaky wheels getting most of the attention, and also provides a mechanism for balancing the needs and resources of the organization while insuring alignment with its mission. It begins to answer the question of what an organization will do with God’s provision of resources to fulfill its mission. Planning is a tool of business stewardship.
We developed the Business Stewardship Model to help keep the proper perspective on the work we do and the work of those we serve.
We developed the CASE Framework for Business Operations to assist organizations with sound business planning and to contextualize it within their own daily operations.
