11 May The Mission Minute Issue #5
During this time of staying at home, Zoom calls, and reading overwhelming amounts of information — Mission Triangle is excited to pass along a weekly “Mission Minute” full of simple nuggets of encouragement, key learnings, and announcements. We find them helpful and hope you do as well!
- Care for the Poor – Nehemiah paused his important work of rebuilding the wall around Jerusalem to care for those that were being neglected in the process. Even in revamping our Strategic Plans, we must remember that our primary purpose is to “love God and our neighbor.”
Sound Business Principle
- Staff Leadership – Caring for your people is one of the primary responsibilities of leadership. Not only is it good business, but it’s real compassion, especially in uncertain times.
- “A great manager can describe in detail the unique talents of each of his/her people, what drives each one, how each one thinks, and how each builds relationships.” – Buckingham, “What Great Managers Do,” Harvard Business Review

In working deeply with Wake County Social Services, Wake County Continuum Care (CoC), Family Promise, Families Together, Passage Home, Salvation Army and Raleigh Rescue Mission, they have been a part of real community impact. In addition, SFFC (video intro) has been able to financially assist 27 families in crisis with shelter (at two SE Raleigh hotels) and/or food assistance as they await government emergency funding.
