Accountability for the resources that God has entrusted to globalLead begins with our awareness that those who share their time, money, and prayers with globalLead view us as stewards. We know that God sees and weighs the merits of our every action.
At globaLead, we take accountability very seriously. We realize that donors trust us to steward the resources we are provided wisely. globalLead is an established government-recognized 501 © (3) non-profit mission organization. As a ministry, we are in need of financial supporters, both churches and individuals, to enable us to continue the work to which God has called us. globalLead files a yearly 990 form with the Internal Revenue Service that is open to public view.
We steward God’s provided resources by wisely partnering with indigenous leaders so that expenses are kept at a minimum. We know that the wisest investment is not to send someone from around the globe to live in another country, but to invest in local leaders who already know the language and are readily available to serve. Our locations not only report back to the international office for accountability but also to their local governments and in most cases to a local board of directors as well.
Given man’s frailty and inherent corruptibility, checks and balances are necessary. We have placed such mechanisms in place to make a statement that globalLead staff want to be above reproach in all that they do. Our own board of directors meets regularly to review the direction and performance of the ministry.
