What SOE Members are Saying

"We joined SOE in 2006 and became Accredited Members in 2009. It has been a lot of work, but well worth it! Our Global Outreach Office and our guidelines and processes have all been built around the seven standards of excellence – all because we know that short-term missions done well is important to the overall impact of CURE around the world."

— Heather Hunter Global Outreach Director, CURE International

"We couldn't be more thankful for the SOE. We were introduced to The Standards at a formational time in our ministry and they brought direction and clarity."

— Kate Borders Sr. Director of Mobilization, World Orphans
