I’m posting on A Life Overseas today on the topic of Mission Drift. This discussion is based on the fantastic book, Mission Drift: The Unspoken Crisis Facing Leaders, Charities, and Churches, by Peter Greer which I highly recommend.

Peter Greer is the president of HOPE International, a global faith-based microfinance organization based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He recently spoke at the Catalyst Conference I attended.

Over at A Life Overseas, I recount what Missions Drift is as well as some qualities of a Mission True organization from the book.

I encourage you to go take a look. This post is best read second, after the A Life Overseas post.

Here we are going to go a bit deeper and look at avoiding this inevitable slide.
