Willow Creek Association Accredited by National Financial Accountability Organization

BARRINGTON, IL  – The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) announced today the accreditation of Willow Creek Association of Barrington, IL.

ECFA accreditation is based on the ECFA Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship™, including financial accountability, transparency, sound board governance and ethical fundraising.

Willow Creek Association joins a growing number of Christ-centered churches and ministries across America, supported by over 20 million donors that have earned the right to display the ECFA seal.  When an organization is accredited by ECFA, it demonstrates its willingness to follow the model of biblical accountability.

“We are pleased to accredit a ministry committed to help leaders worldwide realize God's vision for their lives, churches, and communities,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.

Founded in 1992, Willow Creek Association (www.willowcreek.com) delivers vision and inspiration to resourced regions; and brings training and opportunity to under-resourced areas.  Willow Creek Association serves pioneering pastors and leaders through world-class leadership experiences and resources. They are committed to a singular idea: that inspired, encouraged, and equipped Christian leaders create thriving local churches that redeem their communities for Christ.
