Sustainable Missions

Missions come in all shapes and sizes. Some are large, involve many people, and take on the shape of a formal organization. Other missions are personal, and give passionate charge to an individual wanting to make a difference in the world. Whether organizational or personal, the decision to pursue a mission is often born of compassion and heart.

But sentiment and goodwill alone cannot carry a truly impactful mission. To stand the test of time and leave an indelible mark on the world, your mission must be sustainable. Will it last? Will it fulfill its original purpose? Will it carry all of those involved to the finish line well?

In this course, learn the skills, perspectives and foundational principles required to turn a heart-felt dream of social change into a sustainable mission that makes a lasting difference.
