A North Carolina nonprofit helps churches convert property from liabilities into assets
from Faith & Leadership
Leaders of a community development corporation believe that even struggling congregations can survive and thrive if members take stock of their assets and put them to use as resources for their communities. The reckoning came five years ago when Park Street United Methodist Church needed a new roof for its sanctuary and education building. The bill came to $38,000, which was a stretch for the church. But then five months later, another building the church had used as a Boy Scout meeting place also needed a new roof. The cost? $34,000.
