Control is not leadership; management is not leadership; leadership is leadership – the leader of the corporate-ship. Quality leaders seek to lead and invest 50 percent of their time in advancing the vision imparted to them - its purpose, ethics, principles, motivation & methodologies of the assigned visionary.  Invest 20 percent in empowering those with authority OVER you and 30 percent in leading those assigned TO you.
Dr. Stephen Phinney

Leadership Modality

IOM is a USA/International not-for-profit organization. We do not have any paid employees on our staff – we are registered with our state and federal governments as having zero employees. This keeps our status with the government as a clean &  “selfless” non-profit. All of our “staff” are missionary donor-based members. That means that if people designate their donation toward a particular “staff member" and/or project – a donor check goes to them (or the project) when funds are available. The “staff member” receives that money under a “self-employed” status. We do this to avoid the sacrificial donations of our supporters being paid to the state and federal government for employee expenses, which oddly enough, the IRS supports. It maximizes our donor dollars. The result of all this is, our ministry lives “hand-to-mouth,” while servicing the global community with each of our outreach programs.
