Meet the Need is a not-for-profit charity whose mission is to dramatically increase the impact churches and ministries have in their communities by mobilizing more people to loving acts of service.
As a former Investment Banker on Wall Street, Legislative Aid to a U.S. Congressman on Capitol Hill, MBA from one of the nation’s top business schools, and 15 years as a Management Consultant to Fortune 500 companies, Jim was in the midst of a solid business career. But through it all, as a Christian, he felt like he needed to be spending more time serving God and helping others. He searched for opportunities with local churches and Christian charities but struggled to find something that would take advantage of the skills he had to offer. Then, during the “Dot Com” boom while working as an eBusiness strategist for Internet companies, God turned Jim’s struggle into a personal calling. Jim realized that the same solutions he was helping companies implement could be used to help others find opportunities to reach out to those in need. After 10 years of design, development, piloting and testing, Meet The Need is the realization of that vision, providing a unique and innovative way to leverage leading-edge business technology to enable churches, ministries and individuals to reach out to those in need in their local communities or anywhere in the world.
