“Without careful attention, faith-based organizations will inevitably drift from their founding mission. It’s that simple. It will happen,” reads the opening sentences of “Mission Drift: The Unspoken Crisis Facing Leaders, Charities, and Churches.”
Authors and HOPE International executives Peter Greer and Chris Horst explore the dangers and commonalities of faith-based charitable organizations that have drifted away from their founding missions. In “Mission Drift,” the authors reveal how to determine whether an organization has drifted or is in danger of doing so, and they share lessons garnered from their studies of “mission true” and “mission untrue” organizations.
Greer and Horst provide the tools leaders need to keep their organization’s mission true – or to get them back on track. Supported by considerable research and filled with compelling anecdotes, “Mission Drift” identifies organizations that exhibit intentional, long-term commitment to Christ in contrast to those that have wandered from their core beliefs.
“Mission Drift” includes a foreword by Andy Crouch, author of “Culture Making” and executive editor of Christianity Today, which named “Mission Drift” a 2015 Book Award winner.
