Hephzibah Ministries Accredited by National Financial Accountability Organization

MACON, GA  – The Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) announced today the accreditation of Hephzibah Ministries of Macon, GA.

ECFA accreditation is based on the ECFA Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship™, including financial accountability, transparency, sound board governance and ethical fundraising.

Hephzibah Ministries joins a growing number of Christ-centered churches and ministries across America, supported by over 20 million donors that have earned the right to display the ECFA seal.  When an organization is accredited by ECFA, it demonstrates its willingness to follow the model of biblical accountability.

“We are pleased to include in our membership a ministry committed to providing a residential program for children ages 0 - 21 and pregnant teens that are dependent, neglected and/or abused,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.
