Been Asked to Serve on Your Church's Finance Committee?
Four Things You Need to Know
Join us for this one hour webinar that will take place on Feb. 19 at 1:30 p.m. CDT / 2:30 p.m. ED
After almost twenty-five years of working with churches I have seen my share of financial train wrecks. Many of these unfortunate incidents have been caused by finance committee malfunctions. These situations have ranged from iron-fisted over-controlling team members to weak and passive people who simply agree with anything the pastor wants, and most everything in between...
Without question, the vast majority of these situations occurred because volunteers serving on their church’s finance committee simply did not know what they were supposed to do. One remedy for this is to get ahead of the game by properly preparing potential finance team members for their new assignment. One way to do this is to instruct them in four things they need to know about being a financial leader in a church:
- Know the job qualifications.
- Know the context in which you will serve.
- Know the proper role of a finance team member.
- Know the risks and responsibilities of service.
