Mark Holbrook, president/CEO of Evangelical Christian Credit Union, is one of 14 members of a new commission created to provide input on accountability and policy issues affecting religious organizations.   

The Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability said the Commission on Accountability and Policy for Religious Organizations will address whether churches should file Internal Revenue Service Form 990, the same annual information return that other non-profits must file and whether legislation is needed to curb abuses of the clergy housing allowance exclusion.
