YWAM Ships Kona Accredited by National Financial Accountability Organization

The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) announced today the accreditation of YWAM Ships Kona of Kailua Kona, HI.

ECFA accreditation is based on the ECFA Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship TM, including financial accountability, transparency, sound board governance and ethical fundraising.

YWAM Ships Kona joins a growing number of Christ-centered churches and ministries across America, supported by over 27 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 reach the most isolated and disadvantaged islands in the Pacific,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.

Founded in 2011, YWAM Ships Kona (http://ywamships.net) offers global training and outreach opportunities for volunteers to serve individuals and remote communities with, primary health care, dental, optical, clean water technology, community health education, and Bible distribution, all based on their foundation of training, evangelism, and mercy ministries to advance the kingdom of God through fulfilling the great commission to the most isolated.
