It will be a very helpful resource for leaders who are trying to unite faith and mission in today's world." --The Reverend Dr. John R. Buzza Hope Presbyterian Church and Community Ministry Center Springfield, Illinois "Faith-Based Management offers the fourth important contribution in Peter Brinckerhoff's management series for not-for-profit executives. If mission, finance, and marketing are important to not-for-profits' success, core values and beliefs are essential to the faith-based not-for-profits' very existence. Peter once again challenges and provokes thoughtful reflection while providing the reader with a pragmatic prescription for improving the overall management of the faith-based organization. He challenges each of us to accept full responsibility for carrying out God's work. He shows us a way." --Reid S. Thebault President and CEO YMCA of Metropolitan Detroit

From the Inside Flap:

Faith-Based Management Faith-based organizations differ radically from other not-for-profits. Balancing the tasks of managing staff, working with volunteers, providing services or spiritual assistance, and raising funds is a difficult and often frustrating endeavor. Faith-based organizations also have to operate in the secular world of funding, regulations, marketing, competition, and cash flow. All of these demands can tax even the best managers. Yet amazingly, until now, there were no professional resources geared exclusively to the concerns of leaders and managers of faith-based organizations. The first and only guide of its kind, Faith-Based Management arms you with the knowledge and skills you need to successfully manage your place of worship or faith-based service organization. Drawing upon his many years of experience as a trainer and consultant who has worked with hundreds of organizations nationwide, Peter Brinckerhoff explores the unique demands and common pitfalls that beset faith-based managers. Writing in a congenial, highly accessible style, he identifies the seven major characteristics shared by all successful faith-based organizations and shows you how to assess the strengths and weaknesses of your organization’s management in each category. Using numerous real-world case studies and examples to illustrate his points, he describes proven faith-based management strategies and techniques that you can put to work immediately in your organization. And he provides clear-cut, easy-to-follow guidelines on how to manage for excellence in all crucial areas, including staff recruitment and management, financial stewardship, leadership, marketing, strategic planning, and more. Faith-Based Management is an indispensable hands-on resource for leaders, board members, managers of places of worship, faith-based service organizations, and faith-centered foundations.
