The Champion Group is a professional services and solutions provider that helps Christian schools and ministries become financially sustainable and operationally excellent, so they can have an unrelenting focus on the spiritual development of the next generation for Christ.
Academics is an area most school know how to conduct with great effectiveness. TCG wants to ask you organization, how do your academics reinforce your Purpose? How does your curriculum promote the mission God has laid in front of you? When you have a Discipleship Infused Culture everything points back to the same goal!
Creating disciples of Jesus Christ is the goal of every Christian school. How are you doing in creating disciples at your school? How can you measure the success of something so intangible? The Champion Group will help you identify and implement strategies to maximize and accurately track the health of your school as you strive to lead your students towards authentic relationships with Christ!
Strategic Planning is a word many people use, but what does it mean? Here at TCG we define strategic planning as a process envisioning a desired future, translating vision into broadly defined objectives. It begins with the end and works backward to your current status to set clearly defined objectives to accomplish what is most important for your school to work towards your God-ordained purpose.
Everything rises and falls on leadership. You cannot create an effective strategic plan or raise money sustainably without effective and unified leadership. Boards are a key component to the heart of a nonprofit and it is where many of our partners start in their engagement with TCG. Board Governance is an area that needs to be clearly defined and continuously developed in order to avoid confusion and missional drift. Our Board Governance Training will help your team operate within your God-given gifts and function to the highest level possible.
There is never enough money! However, money is not the cause of your problems, it is a symptom of a deeper issue. Why can’t you raise the money you need, have you ever stopped to ask this question. TCG can help you raise more money than you have ever raised before and bring in more students than you have ever enrolled; but what will happen next. We help schools take money and reinvest it in themselves to work toward true sustainability!
Leadership is vital for success and growth. The leadership for your non-profit drives direction, decisions, culture and so much more. How healthy are your leaders? Who is pouring into them and helping them understand their strengths and weaknesses, so they are better prepared to engage in their responsibilities? Leadership development and coaching is an area many for profit companies dump vast amounts of funds as they see the importance of developing their people, nonprofits rarely see this need. As a result of this oversight many nonprofit leaders will burn out after only a short time at their organization. TCG can help coach and develop your leadership to maximize their ability to lead the organization God has put them in charge of.
Financial Planning and Budgeting is one of the most overlooked aspect of running a nonprofit we see in our effort to help nonprofits become truly sustainable. If you don’t know the numbers, you don’t truly know anything. Creating a financial plan and budget year over year for your organization will create freedom that you have never imagined and allow your people to make decision faster and with more confidence than ever before. This is one of the fastest ways to lead you towards true sustainability!
Operations make your life easier when done well, and so much harder when not present. Many nonprofits will have incredible people who will do anything and everything for the ministry, but is this truly helpful? So often the kindness of someone who is willing to do “everything” is the very thing holding you back from being more organizational effective. It is vital to create systems and process that will outlast any one member of your team to ensure that when that person leaves the task or responsibility is not forgotten. Healthy Operations will help you create a sustainable organizational structure that will endure long after the person who implemented is gone.
