The importance of faith-based organizations in building strong communities was a hallmark of President George W. Bush’s tenure.
One organization, Ekklesia Development Corporation, took on an aggressive initiative to coordinate and improve accessibility to faith-based and community services. Having secured a competitive grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce National Telecommunications and Information Administration, Ekklesia launched Project GILEAD that featured a online hub to connect service providers, consumers, volunteers, donors, employers, and other community stakeholders.
This report offers a look at the project and insights into the dynamics that take place in bringing faith-based innovations to the marketplace.
