CHARLOTTE, NC – The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) announced today the accreditation of With Open Eyes Foundation of Charlotte, NC.
ECFA accreditation is based on the ECFA Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship™, including financial accountability, transparency, sound board governance and ethical fundraising.
With Open Eyes Foundation 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 partner with local ministries and international mission agencies to identify, train, and equip messengers of the gospel as they seek to access unreached people groups,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.
Founded in 2008, With Open Eyes Foundation (www.withopeneyes.net) provides individual pastors called ‘Mobile Messengers’ appropriate transportation and other tools they need for the purposes of introducing the message of Jesus Christ and establishing self-sustaining and reproducing churches.
