About this title


School governance matters. A school's governance model determines the answer to three critical questions: How does the school identify and protect its foundational beliefs? How does the school develop and promote it vision and mission? How does the school identify the roles of those in authority, determine the process for decision making, and ensure accountability? This book introduces, describes, and advocates for the mission-directed governance model. This model has been effective in helping leaders of Christian schools more effectively address organization, purpose, and priority through an organizational structure that will challenge familiar traditions and culture; liberate and motivate leaders, faculty and staff, and reduce internal conflicts and politics. Under the mission-directed governance model the school will be encouraged to define its ideals and to more consciously focus and coordinate every aspect of the organization toward accomplishing its mission and vision while holding fast to its essential positions of faith and philosophy.


This is a great read for anyone involved in Christian school leadership. It provides a fresh insight into governance and how it relates the pursuit of a clear focus, innovation, vision, and unity. --Dan Egeler, President, Associatin of Christian Schools International

Everything flows from the mission of the school, and a clear mission is accomplished through commitment - not compliance. Len Stob's mission-directed governance model focuses all the dimensions of the Christian school on accomplishing the school's stated purpose or mission. This does not happen without effort. An excellent "must read" for every school administrator and school board member who desires excellence in education. --Don Holwerda, Executive Director, EduSource Unlimited

Len Sob provides a philosophical overview along with detailed instruction on how to implement change. We know from personal experience that mission-directed governance can transform your board meetings and strengthen you head-of-school / board relationship, resulting in shared vision and dynamic progress. --Wendy Hofman, Head of School, and Gillian Granger, Presidnt of the Board of Trustees, Lansing Christian School, Lansing, Michigan
