Second Mile Mission Center Becomes an ECFA Accredited Organization

Second Mile Mission Center Accredited by National Financial Accountability Organization

MISSOURI CITY, TX – The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) announced today the accreditation of Second Mile Mission Center of Missouri City, TX.

ECFA accreditation is based on the ECFA Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship™, including financial accountability, transparency, sound board governance and ethical fundraising.
    
Second Mile Mission Center joins a growing number of Christ-centered churches and ministries across America, supported by over 14 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 love their neighbors by meeting physical needs and equipping them to lead a responsible life in Christ,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.

Founded in 2002, Second Mile Mission Center (http://www.secondmile.org) helps Fort Bend County residents in poverty and crisis by providing basic needs and opportunities to take next steps in their lives. While people are drawn to Second Mile for immediate needs such as food or health care, many begin to shift their focus to long-term goals of self-sufficiency for themselves and their family.
