A Clouded Future: Advancing North American Worlds Missions

Engel, James F. A Clouded Future: Advancing North American Worlds Missions. Milwaukee, WI: Christian Stewardship Association, 1996.

Part of a series produced on nonprofit para-church organizations, this booklet focuses on North American mission organizations. Engel discusses financing, organizational and fund-raising topics, including the growing gap between North American missions strategy and global realities and the changing demands on mission leadership. He also addresses the importance of donors and developing communication with them, responsibilities of executive leadership and board members in fund- raising, developing partnerships with local churches, and the key role of returned short-term missionaries in developing financial support.
