Buzza Hope Presbyterian Church and Community Ministry Center Springfield, Illinois "Faith-Based Management offers the fourth important contribution in Peter Brinckerhoff’s management series for not-for-profit executives. If mission, finance, and marketing are important to not-for-profits’ success, core values and beliefs are essential to the faith-based not-for-profits’ very existence.
