Venture Becomes an ECFA Accredited Organization

June 12, 2017

Venture Accredited by National Financial Accountability Organization

BURNSVILLE, MN – The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) announced today the accreditation of Venture of Burnsville, MN.

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

Venture 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 empower people to do tough things to raise funds to help people in tough areas,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.

Founded in 2008, the Venture (www.venture.org) community engages in physical challenges like running, biking, and hiking to help the least reached, least resourced, trafficked children, child soldiers, war refugees, and unreached people groups. Spiritual disciplines are incorporated to help people not only benefit the world, but discover their soul.
