Then the Twelve summoned the whole company of the disciples and said, “It would not be right for us to give up preaching about God to handle financial matters.” Acts 6:2 (HCSB)
Planters have a huge task. Not only are they responsible to minister, share their vision, build the church, reach new people, prepare their messages, organize volunteers, design a logo and website, keep that website updated, etc., etc., etc…. Oh, and by the way, they also have to account for the contributions, pay bills, pay themselves, and accurately report all that information. It doesn’t take long to realize that there are not enough hours in the day and very few are qualified to handle all those responsibilities.

What is at stake?
For most organizations, the financial management is the lifeblood of the organization. Having the funds available to keep the doors open and do ministry is crucial. Beyond that, the financial decisions made by the organization have a trickle effect. Even some seeminly meaningless decisions have a huge effect. Remember, every decision made financially can potentially affect the pastor’s family and others in the church. What are you doing to ensure that every decision is made with the most accurate information available?
What does a volunteer cost?
Don’t get us wrong, volunteers are great. Their servant heart allows a church to minister in ways that would otherwise be unfeasible. We meet with churches everyday that have a great group of volunteers. However, we also meet with churches everyday that express the stress that often comes along with relying on volunteers, especially in crucial areas of the church like financial management. Are you using the best practices for accurately maintaining the financial management of the church?
Get 100% Control?
Churches without a full-time person keeping tabs on their finances are not in complete control. When something needs to be paid, a spending decision needs to be made or a report needs to be delivered, how quickly can you have that info available to you? We met with a church the other day where the pastor had asked for 2 weeks to get a budget line spending report for a certain ministry. It wasn’t that the bookkeeper was being deceptive, we’re not sure she knew how to deliver that report.How valuable is accurate, timely information to you?
