Follower Of One joins more than 2,600 leading churches and ministries across the United States as an ECFA accredited member.
Accountability is important for us at Follower Of One, especially when it comes to accounting for the financial support we get from our partners. Every penny matters. Being an accredited member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability places a third-party verification and auditing process at the table. You may have heard of having accountability partners for areas of your life, well… ECFA is an accountability partner for Follower Of One’s financials.
“Being an accredited ECFA member demonstrates that we at Follower Of One are serious about being good stewards of what God places in front of us,” said Mike Henry, Follower Of One founder.
Follower Of One encourages and invites its funding partners to actively seek information on the way the organization uses funds to bring people one step closer to God.
The Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability was founded 40 years ago by Billy Graham and other evangelical leaders and has grown from a visionary and faithful group of 150 charter members to over 2,600 leading churches and ministries across the United States today.
ECFA enhances trust in Christ-centered churches and ministries like Follower Of One through its annual accreditation of organizations based on Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship™ drawn from Scripture.
ECFA serves as a financial accountability partner to ministries who voluntarily seek accreditation and continue to faithfully demonstrate their commitment to ECFA’s high standards. The standards are set at an appropriately high level to provide the essential guardrails for financial integrity in churches and ministries of all sizes. While admittedly the standards do not address every potential issue or challenge an organization may encounter, they have stood the test of time in helping thousands of churches and ministries enhance trust and become better stewards of their God-given resources.
Additionally, ECFA promotes financial accountability and best practices through innovative resources, including books and eBooks, webinars, videos, podcasts, blogs, research in best practices, conferences, and more.
