The Mission of Significant Matters
Our mission is to advance sustainable solutions to material poverty through the faith-driven community.
What We Do
We work with faith-driven individuals, businesses, churches and other organizations to pursue and promote sustainable and transformative solutions for people and communities fighting poverty and seeking a better future. All as an expression of our love for God and neighbor.
We are a Christian-based nonprofit organization committed to helping the church tackle societal issues in sustainable ways. Through our Workshops, Peer Learning Accelerators, SATtalks, Videos and the SaTCatalyst Fund we help individuals and churches move missions beyond helping that hurts and connect them to a network of peers, partners and resources to help.
