What to look for on Smart Talk Tuesday, February 18, 2014:
Most non-profit organizations in this country are charities or provide service to people or their communities. That’s almost always the case with faith-based non-profits.
The mission or goals of non-profits are important to their existence – more so than for-profit or commercial enterprises who make money for their owners or stockholders.
And that’s not to say that there aren’t commercial businesses who are good and caring citizens. But as the world changes, can non-profits stay true to their missions – especially faith based organizations in a secular atmosphere and why does it matter?
Appearing on Tuesday's Smart Talk is Peter Greer, president and CEO of Hope International and author of the book Mission Drift.
