Abstract: 

Part of a series on nonprofit para-church organizations, this volume is based largely on a 1994 survey conducted by the Christian Stewardship Association and a 1993 survey of rescue mission directors across the U.S. Topics include the role of agency directors in financing rescue missions and effective volunteer and church relations programs. Also addressed are donor demographics, acquisition, and direct mail, and organizing and managing a development department. The role of the board of directors in developing financial support for rescue missions is discussed. (SM)
