Numerous faith-based institutions are seeking structural ways to ensure that the religious and social purposes for which they were founded will serve the present generation well and survive for future generations. Mission committees of the board are relatively new structures, and their purpose is to serve as an accountability structure, similar to the financial and academic committees, by which successive administrations will set appropriate goals, fund those goals, and measure their accomplishment.
This white paper includes information on:
- The purpose and scope of the committee
- Committee responsibilities
- The chief mission officer
- Committee composition
- Tips for effectiveness
