Leading the way through effective Projects and Programs
The Foundation for Missions is dedicated to seeking out ministries, programs and projects that are working to strategically apply resources to multiply these endeavors to create macro and regional results. Most of these will be focused in educational programs and vocational opportunities. The basic philosophy is that “teaching” and “equipping” are essential to raising anyone to productivity. Any and all aid must have the philosophy: “Welfare for a minute, Education for a lifetime” or better put by Christ himself: “…go and make disciples of all nations… teaching them…”
What is the difference between a Project and a Program:
A program is ongoing or long term: example ‘child sponsorship’ or ‘discipleship’
A project is a specific task: example ‘build a house’ or ‘construct a bridge’
Projects/Programs must have the following:
Local representation directly connected to the Foundation for Missions is the best bridge for the selection of our partnership. So the Foundation for Missions personnel (Missionaries, Staff and Ambassadors) will be prioritized. The person closest to it manages it best.
Strategic partnership is developed by consensus of vision, purpose, goals, methodology, relationship and continual agreement. A contract of understanding will be drawn between partnerships home and aboard. A good mission is also good business
Accountability is necessary to insure continual agreement. Transparency, fluid communication and reporting are the ingredients to build long-term strategic partnerships. Good ingredients make good food and fellowship.
Fluid Communication from and to the project and leadership. In the day and age there really isn’t any excuse to not having consistent information, updates, photos and data sent to allow for good decisions and reporting. The better the information the better decisions can be made.
Sustainable Results so that continuation and multiplication becomes a natural result. A properly cared for fruit tree will naturally produce an abundance of fruit. An abundance of fruit is the obvious sign of healthy missions.
Ever expanding blessing; excellence in missions will naturally grow into ministries and programs that will expand and become an ever increasing blessing to the church, the community and eventually to the nation. God’s “Eco-system” of missions will always grow beyond the individual, beyond the church, beyond the community, beyond the city…to the world!
