Alliance Ministries Accredited by National Financial Accountability Organization
BIRMINGHAM, AL – The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) announced today the accreditation of Alliance Ministries of Birmingham, AL.
ECFA accreditation is based on the ECFA Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship™, including financial accountability, transparency, sound board governance and ethical fundraising.
Alliance Ministries joins a growing number of Christ-centered churches and ministries across America, supported by over 20 million donors that have earned the right to display the ECFA seal. When an organization is accredited by ECFA, it demonstrates its willingness to follow the model of biblical accountability.
“We are pleased to accredit a ministry committed to educate, motivate, and activate followers of Jesus, connecting their passions, abilities, and gifting to God’s call on their lives, to transform the world,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.
Founded in 2007, Alliance Ministries (www.alliance-ministries.org) educate with a clear, biblical worldview, integrating provocative curriculum and best-in-class resources that incorporate Jesus’ teachings about life; they motivate believers by providing evaluative surveys that assist in the discovery of their strengths, gifts, passions, abilities, and talents; and they activate the body of Christ by providing Christians a reasonable and pragmatic pathway to community engagement within their own neighborhoods. Building on this foundation, believers move into expanding works of service in unity with other believers, affecting entire communities for Christ.
ECFA, founded in 1979, provides accreditation to leading Christian nonprofit organizations that faithfully demonstrate compliance with the ECFA Standards pertaining to financial accountability, fundraising and board governance.
