For nineteen years, SOAR (Serving Others and Rejoicing) has facilitated custom short term international and domestic mission trips for churches, schools, college groups and individuals around the country. In addition to handling all the logistics for these mission experiences, they also provide six months of training before the event for cultural and spiritual preparation of the participants. Keri Duncan, Executive Director, said “LEAD has really allowed us to tune our focus, rebuild our board, and develop our ability to provide more services. The training has identified many facets of running a nonprofit that we needed to improve. We have definitely improved our focus for fundraising through the two page ministry resume. Overall, the training has given us the impetus we needed to improve.” “My coach, Elaine, was very helpful as we worked through our Board changes. It was nice to have a sounding board to discuss ideas, and then pray about the actions needed,” said Keri. For more information about SOAR, please click here.
