​​​Signature book for faith-based organizations: The Power of One Accord:  7 Spiritual Keys to Harness Synergy in the Boardroom​

While serving on, and working with nonprofits boards for over thirty years, I discovered some of the key challenges that faith-based and nonprofit boards face.  As a result, I developed a passion for helping boards be their best, while working to meet the mission of their organizations. I'm committed to working with boards who strive to join good governance with mission centered values founded on peace and harmony to make a great difference in the communities they love and serve.  If I can support you, your nonprofit or faith-based organization, your board, on a journey of empowerment, it would be my joy to connect with you. 

Here's what some of our participants have said about Board Training & Enrichment Programs....

"Charline lead us through an amazing training that helped us bond as a board and gain clarity on what is ours to do and how to best support our Minister in what is hers to do. The information presented was valuable and timely and the exercises were thought-provoking and fun. I hope we can make this an annual training."

Signature book for Nonprofit organizations:  Boardroom Culture Shock: 7 Strategies to Amplify the Competence and Capacity of Board Culture

We're committed to presenting and participating in programs that give children tools for living confidently in their community and in the world. We support values of family, kindness, community, compassion toward others and the ideals that will allow the generations to come to make choices for peaceful co-habitation of all people on the planet.

We love to work with organizations that lift children and youth through community development programs such as summer camps, after school programs, literacy, leadership development.. 




One of the critical issues facing non-profit Boards is the need for greater understanding regarding their roles and responsibilities.  Crucial to good governance for a faith-based board is operating from the knowledge of board members' true value to the organization.  When we add the spiritual principles that set faith-based organizations apart from for-profit boards, we get to use and enjoy the gifts of serving on a Spirit-led board.

Our Training and Enrichment programs can be customized for a single board or more broad based so that several boards or ministry leaders may participate in a joint workshop, seminar or retreat.  One Accord Board Programs and Initiatives include:
