Free Advice for Christian organisations

This free advice is about using the resources God has blessed you with well. God gives different amounts of resources to his people and will hold us all proportionally accountable (Matthew 25:14-30).
  • Purpose
    • Clearly articulate your purpose
    • Do your purpose well, let that be your reputation 
    • Don't compromise, because everything is corruptible 
  • Communication
    • If your purpose is worthwhile, people will want to share it, so give them the resources to do that: e.g. graphics, documents, footage etc
    • Aesthetics are like behaviour, they communicate non-verbally
    • Depth is important, because the medium is the message, so don't be superficial, offer interesting complexity and scholarly resources 
  • Transparency
    • Be really honest and clear about money and governance
    • Ethics matter
    • It's OK to be flexible, missions change, but update your purpose!
