Mission vs. Money.
Let’s be honest here. Money matters a great deal in Christian schools. From high tuition to low salaries, money (or the lack thereof) leads to many negative decisions.
Christian schools often face the conflict between mission and money. Too frequently, the lack of money wins the battle and the commitment to mission gets put off till another day.
When problems or programs that require money arise, leadership often abdicates their responsibility by saying, “We don’t have the money.” Those in charge should be asking the better question, “How do we get the money?” When that becomes the goal, the pursuit of vision continues.
There is always a way…
The present economic climate has created its own sense of urgency. Rather than abandoning our vision we need to attack the money problem with prayer, vigor and vision.
While we strongly urge boards of education to aggressively pursue raising faculty salaries to a competitive level, on this site we will describe alternative income sources that could aid the budgets of the Christian school and individuals within.
This lesson also suggests some effective curricular additions than have the possibility of bringing in extra funds for the school.
By following the suggestions presented in this lesson, the potential exists to have a significant increase in the income of both the school and individual faculty members.
