Poetice International Accredited by National Financial Accountability Organization

ZEELAND, MI – The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) announced today the accreditation of Poetice International of Zeeland, MI.

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

Poetice International 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 accredited by ECFA, it demonstrates its willingness to follow the model of biblical accountability.

“We are pleased to accredit a ministry committed to cultivate healthy and sustainable communities by empowering the church,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.

Founded in 2009, Poetice International (www.poetice.org) uses transformational development, they pursue physical and spiritual restoration for the widowed, the orphaned, the vulnerable, the exploited, the sick, and the poor. Their desire is to see impoverished communities become materially, socially, physiologically, and spiritually healthy. Their identity originates from merging the beauty of a poem with the actions of justice: forging a new word "Poetice".
