Dear Board Members,
As the board, you are responsible for the continuity, stewardship, and health of the Christian nonprofit. It will ultimately be your decision whether a partnership with Five Stone Mentoring will benefit the organization.
It takes the best executives 3 months to really grasp their role, roughly 6 months to have their feet under them, and a solid year to really feel confident to move forward in the ministry. Every time a nonprofit loses another director, it loses traction and momentum to continue forward. In addition, the trust between the board and the executive director has to start over. Nonprofits struggle with retaining talent, and the greatest reasons are lack of adequate training and support. The purpose of Five Stone Mentoring is to not lose that time by assisting and equipping directors in their roles for greater longevity.
Given the opportunity, I am confident that your center will see the benefits that many others have found through working with Five Stone Mentoring. The care offered within all Christian nonprofits is vital and crucial work. The work done through these priceless organizations change communities and generations. We must continue to move forward in the work of the Father by keeping and equipping great leaders within the ministry.
If you are considering a partnership with Five Stone Mentoring, I would tell you that it is worth the investment…it’s not just a financial investment, but an investment into you or your ED. I know that when my board approved my proposal with FSM, I knew they cared about me, and wanted the best for me and our center. The role of ED can be very lonely, especially in smaller centers…but with the proper education, encouragement, and self-care, your ED can not only successfully lead your center, but love what she/he does as well!
Cassie Walden, Executive Director
