Rapha House International Accredited by National Financial Accountability Organization

JOPLIN, MO – The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) announced today the accreditation of Rapha House International of Joplin, MO.

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

Rapha House 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 love, rescue, and heal children who have been rescued from trafficking and sexual exploitation,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.

Founded in 2011, Rapha House International (www.raphahouse.org) continues to rescue and rehabilitate children, while bringing them to lasting freedom.
