As long as there have been Boards of Directors there has been conflict with ministry leaders, leading to a great deal of dysfunction and role confusion. Listen to David Jones clarify the role of the Board in a Christ-centered organization, define the twelve responsibilities of board members, profile the ideal board member, provide remedies for recruiting exceptional board members who add value to your ministry, explore board governance challenges, help you create productive board meetings, examine the questions boards should be asking, and show you how to work with and build an All-Star Board that can take your ministry to a new level of sustainable ministry and financial growth.
This was one of the workshops at the Connect PDX Conference in Portland, Oregon in September 2019.
