Mr. Brian Heerwagen

Profile:

I serve as the Chief Executive Officer for DELTA Ministries. My first short-term mission (STM) ever was on a DELTA team in 1980. I continued to go on short-term teams each year. In 1985 I was hired as the director at DELTA. At that time, I was a student at the University of Oregon in the School of Architecture. Though I don't do much with design or building buildings, much of what I learned about strategies, organization and people have helped in my leadership at DELTA. I have been to missions fields in 26 countries and have led or been on countless short-term teams. One of the highlights, for me, was taking Jesus to an unreached people group in the Andes Mountains of northern Argentina. Another highlight would be partnership with churches in southern Italy and participating in evangelistic ministries where we've seen so many come to Christ. And I'd have to say an added highlight would be all the missionaries that I've gotten to know over the years - I have some great friends around the world!

Leadership Statement:

DELTA Ministries started as a great idea and, in 1979, the first team was sent out to serve local churches. The training, at its core was rooted in God’s Word and His principles for service. As a result, it was life-changing and the ministry that followed gave people opportunity to put it into practice. Now, having completed our 35th year, I am proud to say that what was core to DELTA then remains core today. Yet, I have to admit over the years things have challenged the very core of what we do. Those things may come from the outside through “the changing times,” or they may come from the inside, like in those times when we “think we’ve got it all together.” In any case, keeping to the core can be challenging. The delivery of every ministry may be different, but the core remains: Discipling – We utilize short-term missions to remind, train and equip those who are already saved to the call of a completely surrendered life to Christ—to imbibe in His Spirit and to imitate His example. Evangelizing - DELTA equips every short-termer to share their faith. Leading - DELTA’s missionary staff offers over 200 years of combined missions and ministry experience that has collectively served in over 40 countries. This experience enables DELTA to step in and help train and equip both pastors and lay staff to lead teams as well as personally lead teams as needed. Training - DELTA trains up short-termers in four core areas: Christian Character, Conduct, Community, and Crossing Culture. Assisting - DELTA provides churches, schools, partner mission ministries and individual assistance through the three phases of short-term mission: pre-field, on-field and post-field. Our assistance is hands-on and customized based on the needs at hand and the leading of the Holy Spirit.

Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Yes
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Yes
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Yes
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Yes
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
No

Program Description:

DELTA comes alongside the local church and provides customized training, consultation and logistical support so that the church can integrate short-term ministry teams into their outreach strategy. DELTA has Short-Term Mission Coaches who serve as a partner with local church leadership and provide regular consulting throughout the multiple phases of a short-term team.

Program Long-Term Success:

Nearly 450 individuals from local churches in the U.S. and New Zealand are mobilized for both U.S. and international outreach. Together, over 75,000 man-hours are contributed by adults and youth free of charge to assist and love others the the disadvantaged in over 20 countries around the world.  These teams share the love of Jesus Christ verbally and practically.  The long term success includes:  A personal relationship with God, those who are need and helpless are provided food, shelter and clothing.  Individuals and families devastated by Hurricanes or earthquakes are provided new housing, financial support and have seen their lives rebuilt.

Program Short-Term Success:

- Over 30 teams from churches have been properly trained and mobilized for mission work in nearly 20 countries; -  75,000 volunteer hours have been contributed to serve those in need and share the love of Jesus Christ. - Free medical clinics have been offered in India and Haiti to help those who cannot help themselves. - 20 homes have been built, clean water plants for two communities, a school and church built for victims of the Haiti earthquake.

Program Success Monitored by:

- We are in constant communication with churches and their leadership about our performance, which ensures we can correct issues along the way; - We also survey every short-term mission team after completion and evaluate feedback to determine if goals were met; - The host location is also surveyed for feedback and correction action is taken; - We are also evaluated and audited by the Standards of Excellence (SOE) peer review team, which is a national best practice association for short-term missions.

Program Success Examples:

A team of 36 individuals served in an orphan village in Uganda.  They were able to conduct a free dental clinic for those that do not have access to good health care, they painted 5 homes in an orphan village, they decorated a home used to host people, set up clothes lines so mums could hang their clothes, brought gifts and hygiene items to mums who care for orphans and built solid relationships.  This is one example of many teams that will serve this year.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.
