The finances of a church are a concrete expression of its vision, its priorities, and its commitment to doing things “decently and in order.” This book examines the basis of sound stewardship as applied to the practical aspects of budgeting, reporting, and control of expenses in a church. It suggests a remuneration policy for pastors and other paid workers, outlines the responsibilities of members in supporting their church, and includes a suggested spreadsheet for budgeting and reporting.
