Council Leadership 102: Church Finance – May 28

Group 236

Financial Management: What Councils Need to Know

During the second Council Leadership session, we review three areas that church councils should be monitoring:

  • Are we protecting the resources for which we are responsible?
  • How is our congregation doing financially?
  • Are we honoring the intent of our donors?

Sample financial reports and control procedures were discussed.
