Christians are known – or at least should be known – by their compassion and good works. We have the ultimate compassion example in Jesus! I would estimate that at least two-thirds of all faith-based non-profits around the world find themselves in the ‘compassion/mercy zone. Their organizations are platforms for healthcare, nutrition, housing, education, job-training and countless other causes. Hopefully, our compassion ministries lead people to a personal relationship with the compassionate Savior.
Serving others is not for the faint-hearted. It’s hard work. Compassion fatigue and burn-out is very real among church and non-profit leaders. Best practices rooted in robust theology are desperately needed. In my ongoing efforts to connect with ministry organizations and churches that are doing good work together, I was recently introduced to the True Charity Network. True Charity serves the local church by compiling easy-to-use guides highlighting best practices and trustworthy approaches to different types of ministry.
