Governance, the Church and Society
- Governance is the systems and processes for managing the overall direction, effectiveness, supervision and accountability of an organisation.
- Simply put, governance is how an organisation is managed for sustainability. For people charged with governance, this role generally requires a lot, including avoiding conflict of interest, promoting an ethical culture and acting in the best interest of all stakeholders.
- Churches are public institutions and exist for the benefit of society in addition to the primary mandate of salvation
- Churches are accountable to God but so is everyone. God doesn’t need accounts, people do.
- As public institutions, churches are accountable to the people.
