|When Rich Stearns left a lucrative career in business to head up a humanitarian aid group, he had little idea of what lay ahead. Stearns is the CEO of World Vision USA, the funder of this show.|
Stearns' main assignment is to come up with the $1 billion a year it takes to run the world's largest nongovernmental organization. As World Vision is a faith-based charity, he turns to the American church for a large portion of the funding he needs to help the poor.
Stearns has written a book about what he's learned on the job, and what he told host Peggy Wehmeyer in this interview may surprise you.
Stearn's book, The Hole in Our Gospel, will be on bookshelves on March 10.
