Protect Your Ministry’s Finances

Protecting your ministry’s finances is vital. This module is designed to provide insight into the necessary internal controls an organization should have in place to protect its financial assets. It will also explore the signs and symptoms of fraud and an overview of an internal audit process.

Lead Like Jesus

This module is designed to help the participant learn what is needed to develop the heart, head, hands and habits of a great leader with Jesus as the model. The readings, videos, and other materials are designed to help the participant uncover what might be keeping him/her from realizing full leadership potential while helping develop those skills and habits needed to become a leader who leads like Jesus. Lead Like Jesus’ definition of leadership says that “anytime you influence the thinking, behavior or development of another person you are engaging in leadership.” So whether you are a stay-at-home parent, a teacher, a CEO, an administrative professional, an electrician, a nurse, a coach or church leader, you are influencing the lives of others and that makes YOU a leader!
*This is a required course for an Outcomes Leadership CORE Certificate.

Fundamentals of Major Gift Fundraising

Major gift fundraising is a critical part of any nonprofit organization’s portfolio, yet securing major gifts requires wise planning and implementation. This module is designed to introduce simple yet important principles to illustrate the fundamentals of major gift fundraising. This includes the sacredness of the task, and the deeply relational playfulness and fun of this work. Participants will have ten weeks of interaction with fellow colleagues, while engaging in reading and discussions built around the concepts presented in each session. Upon completion of this module you will be able to implement creative strategies and tactics for a successful major donor program in your organization.
