Paradise Bound Ministries Accredited by National Financial Accountability Organization

HAMILTON, MI  – The Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) announced today the accreditation of Paradise Bound Ministries of Hamilton, MI.

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

Paradise Bound 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 continuing the earthly ministry of Jesus Christ.  Accomplishing this through His primary example of ministering to the physical needs first, thus earning the love, respect, and imminent opportunity to present the Gospel,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.

Founded in 1997, Paradise Bound Ministries’ ( goal is simple: ’Whatever it takes’ to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost and dying of Guatemala.  Paradise Bound Ministries lives this out in their daily lives, their mission teams, and in every program in which they are privileged to take part.  Christ never waited for the needy to come to Him, instead meeting God’s children where they were, physically and spiritually, this is the example that Paradise Bound Ministries strives to follow.
