Organizations of Faith have an added responsibility in addition to good governance. By definition of their own mission they must strive to model the foundational ideal at the core of all faith-based organizations. Social values that honor and support a belief in service and helping others. The Board's greatest work may in fact be demonstrating that governance and compassion at the boardroom table can model social values of Harmony, Peace, and Wisdom on the leadership level. In fact, this may very well be their greatest work.
