Ten members of PMI’s Board of Directors took a “capacity-building” training offered by Partners International. Our Board members now better understand their role to serve our organization, avoid confusion of roles and assure the accountability and working alongside the Executive Director in an effective and coherent manner.
We established values of the organization and looked for ways to articulate them so that they might be embodied in the daily life of the mission. We worked to instill mechanisms of accountability, monitoring, and supporting the organization. The result was more unity and a sense of ownership and identity. We also expressed a desire to increase our time in prayer and devotions to seek the will of God as a group.
