A blend of grace and various abilities...

Commitment

The IGO Worldwide Board of Directors is comprised of a cross-section of Christian men and women — the professional person, the homemaker, the business owner, the retired — who have their own stake in worldwide missions. The Lord has brought together a group of down-to-earth people with a God/World perspective. Their blend of abilities and grace set the tone from its inception. IGO is dedicated to keep that distinctive even as missionary opportunities increase.

The Board, serving without compensation, is responsible for establishing broad corporate policy. They are an active body, meeting at least twice a year. In addition, each member serves on one of three Standing Committees (Committee on Directors, Committee on Administration & Finance, and Audit Committee).

Each person serving in some administrative role or strategic ministry must abide by our statement of faith. The statement of faith is historically fundamental, thoroughly conservative and unashamedly evangelical. All must comply with our overall objective, that of proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the end that people are converted and discipled in the Scriptures.

Basic functions of our board:

Maintain meaningful communication with the IGO Worldwide Field Administrator and Missionaries:

  • Exchange needed information and comments, effectively.

  • Observe missionary activities firsthand and monitor compliance with IGO contract.

  • Provide necessary aid, comfort or assistance, utilizing all resources available.

Maintain faithful commitments with our Financial Supporters and Prayer Partners:

  • Uphold Our Core Beliefs, which are essential to the Christian faith.

  • Demonstrate competence and ethical conduct in all corporate matters.

  • Certify qualified individuals to serve on the mission field.

Maintain strict compliance with Federal and State laws & regulations:

  • Preserve legal status as a tax-exempt, nonprofit corporation.

  • Conform to established accounting and business practices.

  • File accurate reports with governmental agencies, in a timely manner.
