What We Do

Puzzle Pieces

Significant Matters is a Christian-based nonprofit organization committed to helping the church and faith-based organizations tackle societal issues in sustainable ways.  Through our Missions 3.0 Workshops, Peer Learning Communities and consulting we help churches move missions beyond helping that hurts and connect them to a network of peers, partners and resources to help.
