In 2004, NCMI developed the Apex Project, a tool which provides Faith Based Organizations within its network with a learning and development opportunity.

Since 2004, NCMI has developed a strong intermediary role in building the capacity of non-profits (CMCs) using the APEX Project to form a network of faith-based organizations that seek organizational and leadership excellence in serving the poor. The APEX Project provides an accurate and objective self assessment to enhance their efforts to address the root causes of poverty; recruit, train, deploy, and supervise a network of trainers, consultants and coaches to assist in the path to excellence; implement a leadership development program for executive leadership; and build and maintain a web-based collection of tools to assist executive leadership.
