From my work in cardiovascular research to pastoring churches to the nonprofit space, I’ve learned that good numbers can point to a larger story that leaders should understand. Our financial report from a disrupted year tells us the story of three inseparable gifts: the generosity of our community, the stewardship of our staff, and the grace of God.
As a donor to Denver Institute and other city nonprofits, I want to know that the organization is stewarding the resources God gives them well and is operating in a financially healthy way. You can see “good numbers” below in these graphs, but the larger story of stewardship, financial health, and God’s grace can be seen in many ways.
This gracious financial story leaves us deeply grateful to our donors for their belief in this mission and to God for his sustaining presence to us.
Brian is the VP of Formation here at DIFW and also leads our 5280 Fellowship program. Prior to landing at DIFW, he served in pastoral ministry for thirteen years and at Denver Seminary for four years. His vocation includes moving ideas out into life through relationships and conversation – whether that applies to God, work, the Church, good beer, or Liverpool Football Club. He married way out of his league, and spends most of his free-time being parented by his two daughters.
