A Live and Vibrant Board

A Live and Vibrant Board

My business revolves around helping Christian nonprofits become the best they can be. Over the years I have learned that reaching that goal can become difficult when many moving parts have to work as one—including the board of directors.

Unfortunately, I have personally wi ...Read more »
