Community Empowerment Research

We help churches and nonprofits
measure needs of the people they serve,
set strategies to meet those needs, and
assess the impact of their work in service, evangelism, and outreach.

Doing Well at Doing Good

Presentation Made by Professor Michael E. Porter at Willow Creek Leadership Summit, August 2007


•  Today, government cannot solve all of society’s problems, at home or abroad.

•  We will have to solve these problems ourselves.

•  Congregational leaders must see this as a central part of their mission.

•  Your role is to mobilize your organizations to do good beyond the walls of the church.

•  Doing well at doing good is challenging, and must be approached strategically.

•  Delivering value to society will require raising the bar on utilizing your resources well.
