Pleasant Valley Baptist Church Certified by National Financial Accountability Organization

LIBERTY, MO – The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) announced today the certification of Pleasant Valley Baptist Church of Liberty, MO.

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

Pleasant Valley Baptist Church joins a growing number of Christ-centered churches and ministries across America, supported by over 27 million donors that have earned the right to display the ECFA seal.  When an organization is certified by ECFA, it demonstrates its willingness to follow the model of biblical accountability.

“We are pleased to certify a church committed to unleashing the influence of Jesus Christ in Pleasant Valley, the Northland, and beyond,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.

Founded in 1947, Pleasant Valley Baptist Church’s (www.pleasantvalley.org) mission is to reveal the beauty of Jesus, build the kingdom family, and live life on mission together. Their programs, ministries, and activities are offered for those who are exploring; to help those who accept Christ grow as disciples; to help members find their niche for serving, know how to share their faith, engage in mission efforts in their community, and through their national and international mission endeavors. Currently the church has ongoing mission efforts in Ramah, New Mexico, New York, Sierra Leone, India, Indonesia, and Thailand. They are investigating mission opportunities in Ecuador for 2017.

ECFA, founded in 1979, provides certification to leading Christian nonprofit organizations that faithfully demonstrate compliance with the ECFA Standards pertaining to financial accountability, fundraising and board governance.  For more information about ECFA, including information about certification and a listing of ECFA-certified members, visit www.ECFA.org or call 1-800-323-9473.
