Sustainable Institutions, Like Ecosystems, Utilize God’s Generous Provision

Elegant design of an institutional “ecosystem involves fundamentally responding to God’s generous provision, thinking in terms of not just the physical space and the short-term problems, but the people, ideas, services, networks, and budgets involved in sustaining the institution for the long term. Elegance involves thinking about the design of our institutions from a position of abundance, as long-lasting ecosystems rather than simply as competitors for philanthropic dollars, says L. Gregory Jones, professor of theology at Duke Divinity School, in an article written for Faith & Leadership, an online offering of Leadership Education at Duke. Understanding God’s boundless provision enables institution leaders to focus on the long-term goals rather than the short-term problems, allowing them to accomplish the work that brought these institutions into being in the first place.
