Training for the Original Nonprofit


These days, it's not business as usual in our churches.
Become a reliable, knowledgeable partner

to help run A successful nonprofit--your church!

Thanks to a partnership with ASU Lodestar Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Innovation, The Episcopal Diocese of Arizona has developed a holistic nonprofit management graduate/executive level certificate program: Best Skills Best Churches. ASU has invited 6 top level, non-profit professionals to instruct each course and the Diocese has matched those with our own responders to apply the knowledge to our faith communities.

The Nonprofit Management Program is specially designed to empower faith leaders by teaching best practices in nonprofit management to strengthen and grow Christ's church. Graduates will earn a Certificate from ASU Lodestar Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Innovation in Nonprofit Management.
