Christian LeFer is an author, speaker, and creator of GetNonprofitStatus.com and the Non-Profit Launch Kit, and leads a successful marketing and opportunity management consultancy with clients across the United States. A sought-after strategist and advisor, he has assisted charities both large and local, churches, CEOs, and candidates in getting their message across. He and his wife are therapeutic foster parents and are advocates for foster parenting and adoption, winning an agency award as "Foster Parents of the Year" for 2011 in their region.
Christian's career path crossed a wide spectrum, with experience in finance, construction, and as an entrepreneur - until his interest in the non-profit sector proved too strong to resist. Over the past ten years, he has formed, run, and advised dozens of non-profit organizations with diverse missions.
Now he wants to help as many others as possible achieve success in the non-profit sector. Christian specializes in guiding individuals and teams to bring their world-changing mission into reality by helping crystallize their vision into an action plan, with a constant eye to seeking and harvesting new opportunities for growth.
In the introduction to his forthcoming book, Compelled to Action: Voluntarism’s Victory over Coercion, Christian declares:
“Contrary to conventional wisdom, I believe that the need for committed individuals to launch well-run non-profits and charitable ministries in the near future will be greater than at any time in our nation’s - even our world’s - history. But these leaders must outrun a new spirit of government compulsion.
“Economic crisis - whether the one we’ve seen or the one that many believe is looming - is not a reason to hesitate starting a non-profit. In fact, it’s the reason you MUST heed the call, if you have one, to serve others. Get started NOW.
“Political elites will never solve the world’s problems. Find me a need and I’ll find you a free American who has a vision to meet it voluntarily and more effectively than any bureaucrat could. True voluntarism beats ‘incentive’ - or coercion - every time.
“When it comes to delivering services compassionately, efficiently, and transparently, nothing can match the independent non-profit organization or ministry. I hope you’ll join me in pursuing the road less traveled - I will do all I can to make that path easier for you to take.”
