CIM’s vision is to see every Christian ministry making the most of their IT opportunities.
CIM wants every Christian ministry to have a confident assurance about their IT environment.
CIM’s purpose in the kingdom is to serve ministries by supporting
their individual missions with strategically integrated information solutions.
CIM supports our partners through our focus on the following core values:
- Strategy – we begin with and remain focused on the ministry’s long term mission and vision. Individual IT projects, upgrades and initiatives are always considered in light of the long term mission.
- Service – we provide a team of specialists that can address a variety of needs across the IT spectrum. Our partners do not have to hire or seek out individual IT experts to address specific or transient IT requirements. Our helpdesk, documentation and onsite presence help to insure that our partner ministries have a stable, sustainable and scalable IT environment.
- Stewardship – we are not vendors. Instead, we work with all software and hardware vendors to negotiate best prices for our ministry partners. We are well versed in the business cycles and charity programs of all major vendors and can arrange for very attractive pricing on best available solutions. As a result, our partners do not normally have to settle for donated, second-hand or refurbished equipment. CIM services are usually priced below what it would take an organization to hire internal staff to accomplish its IT goals.
Christ Centered: all that we do seeks to bring honor to our Lord Jesus Christ. We look to him as our guide for personal and organizational life, and we willingly submit our plans, thoughts, ideas and lives to Him.
Kingdom Focused: all that we do seeks to expand the earthly Kingdom of Jesus Christ, to provide a means to spread His Gospel and to enable all within our sphere of influence to become more effective in advancing His Kingdom.
Ministry Partnership: all that we do seeks to advance the unique and individual calling Christ has placed with each individual ministry. Due to the longer range life-cycles of budgets & plans, and due to the constant evolution of technology & its applications, we seek to partner with ministries over long periods of time in order to fully develop, support and enable their IT efforts.
Team Orientation: all that we do seeks to provide Christian ministries with the best adaptable solutions to execute their individual missions. Because no single individual or solution has the ability to fully address all aspects of an organization’s robust IT environment, our team is made up of people with varied IT expertise, allowing our ministries to access “full-horizon” insight into IT practices & solutions.
Strategic Approach To IT: all that we do seeks to identify, harness & direct opportunities in technology for Christian ministries. Starting with the inspired mission God has given each ministry, we believe comprehensive IT planning, within the context of the organization’s mission, provides the ministry unique opportunities in accomplishing what God has called them to undertake.
CIM is organized as a 501(c)(3) “Private Operating Foundation” under the IRS 501c3 non-profit code. Our mission is to support the information technology (IT) needs of Christian ministries.
