Ever wanted to know the WHY, WHO, WHAT and HOW of governance and management of a healthy Christian organisation? Have you ever come across terms like vision, mission, strategic planning, policy governance, core values, core purpose, accountability, management and governance and wondered not just what they are but how they fit together? If you are involved as a leader in a Christian church, school, mission, aged care service or other Christian not-for-profit this book is for you. The Resolve Consulting Group Community Governance framework puts together the pieces of the healthy Christian organisational governance puzzle in an easy to use visual framework that is designed for your Christian organisation.

This book proposes a new governance framework for Christian organizations built around the core biblical principle of relationships being central to the way we should view life and its various challenges, opportunities and issues. In my work with Christian schools in over 100 countries, the enemy appears to utilize this area of relationships at the leadership level to hamper ministries around the world. This book provides some critical insight into how structures can be implemented to foster healthy relationships at the governance level so that God can be glorified. --Daniel Egeler, Vice President of International Ministries ~ Association of Christian Schools International
In a day and age when new emphasis has been placed on building authentic relationship and Christian community, this book is an essential ingredient for every organisation to consider adopting in order to give them clear guidelines, positive procedures and most importantly a biblical foundation for achieving results. --Dr. Timothy L. Heaton, Professor of Education ~ Cedarville University, Ohio
I was greatly encouraged by the diversity and depth of helpful information this book both explores and explains. It is an easy-to-read handbook, full of practical insight and advice that is both God glorifying and people focused. To all those who wish to serve our King more effectively, I would nominate this book as an absolute must-have resource for Board development in not-for profit organisations across the Christian community. --David Bonanno, National Director ~ Youth for Christ Australia
