What is Compel Academy?


When it comes to running a ministry, most of us know the impact we want, but are caught in the day to day struggle of running and funding the organization. If you are looking for proven fundraising strategies, keys to a healthy board, or an overall stronger organization, Compel Academy provides the training and resources you need to have the impact you want!

After taking the Compel course, our team discovered clarity around our vision for the work we do. The clarity we acquired through the Compel process was critical to our banquet success. As a result, we saw our giving double in the next quarter, and we gained new missional partners!

The Compel Difference

The nonprofit industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States. Millions have been called to make a positive difference in the world. However, the industry is more competitive than ever. More and more nonprofits are competing for the same charitable dollars. And what makes that even more challenging is that giving has not increased in the last 30 years. While that may seem discouraging, The National Christian Foundation Heartland has been a part of mobilizing $1.9 billion in 16 years.
