Mission Drift: The Unspoken Crisis Facing Leaders, Charities, and Churches
A Christianity Today 2015 Book Award Winner
Without careful attention, faith-based organizations drift from their founding mission. It's that simple. It will happen.
Why do so many organizations wander from their mission, while others remain Mission True? Can drift be prevented? In Mission Drift, HOPE International executives Peter Greer and Chris Horst show how to determine whether your organization is in danger of drift, and they share the results of their research into Mission True and Mission Untrue organizations. Even if your organization is on course, it's wise to look for ways to inoculate yourself against drift. You'll discover what you can do to prevent drift or get back on track and how to protect what matters most.
