Summary
"Building Effective Boards for Religious Organizations - a first-ever look at a Board's crucial role in a religious nonprofit - is a comprehensive, practical handbook for any religious organization." "Drawing clear insights from a wide variety of religious board experts, Building Effective Boards for Religious Organizations addresses the challenges of understanding how and why religious boards operate as they do. Through case studies and concrete recommendations, this guide shows how boards can replace the hierarchical management model with a cooperative model of trusteeship that encourages a faithful, and more effective, practice of governance. It illuminates the board's proper role in strategic planning, offers insights on how to deal with mergers, provides a process for reading the current health of the organization, and shows how a deep appreciation of the organization's mission enables boards to organize for greater impact."--BOOK JACKET
