A Simple Approach to Good Governance by Kim Thibault

In November 2022, Christian Savings held a national conference “Building the Church for Today and Tomorrow” where the topics from seven speakers focused on how governance of churches and charities can be promoted and practiced well.  

This is a recording from one of the seven sessions we held.

What exactly is governance, and what does that mean for the local church in New Zealand today?
