A Milestone - ECFA Accreditation
July 11, 2016
"An important point in the progress or development of something..." (Merriam-Webster Dictionary)
(PLEASE NOTE: Global NIM did not renew its ECFA membership in July 2017. Please see the August 9th blog article for the details behind this decision.)
Since the early years of its existence (2004-2005) Global NIM's Board and staff have attempted to position and operate Global NIM in compliance with the high stewardship standards set by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) (http://www.ecfa.org/content/standards).
We are pleased to announce that Global NIM received its ECFA accreditation effective July 1st! To be a member of the ECFA Community is a very big honor.
The Benefits of an ECFA accreditation are many. Per ECFA's website: "It's not always easy to earn people's trust. Just as people are more likely to trust an accredited college or a product with the Good Housekeeping seal, donors are more likely to share their resources with an organization they believe to be trustworthy."
Global NIM's ECFA accreditation comes as an answer to prayer and an affirmation of Andrew's commitment to join in the full-time leadership of Global NIM's day-to-day operations. This change has afforded time to focus our collective energies on expanding Global NIM's footprint, networking and the deepening the relationships with Global NIM's mission partners, both home and abroad.
Along with the ECFA accreditation, this re-alignment will lead us to the next Milestone, whatever it may be.
To God be the Glory for the great things He has done and will continue to do through Global NIM's mission partners!
